Ex-pat living in rural, country lanes, with no bin collection sent me into a tail-spin! I had to take by bag, by car, a mile to collection point. A farmer, taking his bin by trailer,took it upon himself to get the facts. Several firms said 10/12 customers makes it viable for us to plan a route, we start 4am, leave bin outside for scanning, pay monthly, quarterly, annually as you prefer. Pay per bag also an option. I went for bins monthly and found they got to my area around 11am. Provide mobile number and text sent night before to remind which bin/balance on your account. If home, out it goes around 10.30, back in 11.30 latest, unless breakdown/delay when they send an apology/revised details. Two staff, one hops out, scans barcode, empties bin, gone in seconds. In Estates, they're in/out in next to no time; depending on width road/parking you're never delayed much longer than having to wait for a neighbour! Farms/Businesses they do willingly as there is room to turn. Worked well for me for 5yrs, cancelled recently for cheaper option; sack in boot, into crusher at local store or garage forecourts. They collected their bins, free of charge, of course. Agree should wait for Scheme to be finalised and no doubt will mean quarry filling, landfill or ferry out but that's living on an Island.
