Hello I’m Garry, Head of Waste Services at Tameside Council. I’m here from 12.30 for about an hour to answer your questions about our refuse and recycling service

Hi Mrs Buckley, we can give us a larger caddy in place of a brown bin these are more suitable to flats, maisonettes and other non garden properties. You would place the larger caddy out for collection and leave the smaller one in your home.

Can you please explain why the brown caddies were delivered to flats and maisonettes? The object of these boxes is to recycle food waste then store it in brown garden bins. The majority of this type of property do not have a garden so have not been provided with garden bins. How much have all these useless bins cost?
Mrs Mary Buckley

Slight glitch with the system there, the first question appeared after Garry’s answer!

I have all of the recycling bins which I use regularly. The brown caddy has been in my garage since being delivered as I use the big brown bin. With recycling being so important I would like to know what is being done to enable us to recycle all the plastic waste which is “recyclable”, but which has to go in the black bin as Tameside council can’t recycle this type of plastic.
