Have you all had your recycling collections stopped? 13:52 - Apr 3 with 722 viewsBrixtonBlue

I guess it's not as essential as regular waste collections, but the bins are rammed up our way and I can see people opting to fly tip in the near future, sadly. Luckily we have a garden so we can pile up our cardboard in the corner with a brick on it, not sure what people without gardens are going to do.

Only our garden waste collection has been stopped, brown bin.

Recycling bin, blue bin, carrying on as normal as well as the domestic waste, black bin.

In theory ours is going.

In practice our recycling was left, along with a couple of other houses- but the others were collected. Bizarre.

Our domestic and food waste have both moved to fortnightly, but everything else (glass, plastic, metal, paper & cardboard) have all stopped completely until further notice.

Domestic one week, recycling the next, and so on.

Local tip is closed, which is annoying as I wanted to redo the little bedroom whilst all this was going on.

I heard, via the medium of WifeSentence, that fly-tipping has already gone up 300%, which is little surprise with the dumps all closed.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

You'll just have to use new stuff for the little bedroom then...

Was thinking that this morning as ours was picked up. We put out LOADS of recycling; regularly two if not three bins full of either plastic or paper/cardboard. Our house would soon look like one of the hoarders you see on Channel 5 if they stopped.

Yes/No. Garden waste has been stopped, general waste (non recycling) is every 2 weeks all the recycle ones are moving to 4 weeks

Although problems with 'bin men' self isolating so collections could be stopped

I would also add they said people can take their garden waste to the waste recycling centres (the tips) and then shut them all so I'm sure we'll see more fly tipping

Recycling blue bin was emptied yesterday morning.

Brown/Green bin has never been part of the fortnightly collection here, everyone is expected to compost.

I know a bit about this. No one will have the statistics to know that fly tipping is up or down yet. Reporting of the stats is nowhere near that quick! I've not heard any reports of increased fly tipping though, not yet.

In reality though, members of public just don't fly tip really (not in Suffolk anyway), its almost all from dodgy traders and builders. With the obvious exception of mattresses in town centres etc, but that's nothing to do with lack of services and more people without cars unable to take to the tip.

In reply to Brixton - I'd imagine London collections are struggling badly. Lack of collection crews means that councils have to prioritise and anything smelly will need to be collected.

I think the simple answer is that for the short term you just have to put the recycling in with the disposal waste. The council will be obliged to take it.

As to your second point, yeah, that's what we've started doing, sadly. It's daft - if they can collect it that way, why can't they continue to collect it separately?

On your first point, I've just moved from Brixton out to Crystal Palace. Brixton, which for those who don't know is more central, still has all its normal collections.

Fly-tipping is for wimps. Try a cow.

Having said that I'd execute every ************* last one of 'em. Slowly.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.
