New Rubbish and Recycling Bins
Creuse has been chosen as part of a trail of a new rubbish and recycling system. This was supposed to be introduced in time to start in the New Year but it seems to have been delayed a bit. They were going to stop collecting rubbish from the old bins from 01 January 2018 but I don't think that is likely now.
A nice couple called around a month or so ago and we choose our new bin sizes. We took a large recycling bin and the smallest rubbish bin. You don't pay for recycling but pay a little less for empting a smaller rubbish bin, and we have little rubbish, this seemed best. The new idea is that all bins are chipped and you pay, not by the weight or amount, but by the number of times it is emptied. I'm not clear exactly how this is going to work but we'll only put our rubbish bin out when it is full and that won't be very often so it might even save us a little.
The new company évolis23 left a one page document about it together with a yellow sticker for us to leave on our postbox - although we didn't fancy that so phoned up instead to be told is was delayed and to check with the Marie. We did and they knew nothing more other than it's off until next year.
Has anyone actually received new bins yet?
