BLUE bins - again: has a bin system used in other authorities been considered by Sheffield?
Bins there have a plastic basket hanging inside, covering half the bin.
Paper is dropped into the bottom and bottles etc stored in the basket.
The bin is easily wheeled out, the collectors lift the basket out and tip into the wagon, the paper bin hoisted as normal.
Bye bye blue boxes, paper is back in bins.
Sorted and (maybe) everyone is happy.
