Households ‘will have up to 7 bins each’ as part of huge changes to rubbish collections

The government wants to standardise waste collection so it is the same across the country by 2023/24 but the District Councils’ Network says the plans are “poorly thought out”.

The government wants to standardise waste collection so it is the same across the country by 2023/24 as part of the Environment Bill.

But the District Councils’ Network (DCN), which represents 183 councils in England, has warned this could be chaotic for some households with people possibly needing more bins than ever before.

It claims the plans could see households need four separate bins for dry recyclables – glass, metal, plastic, paper and card – as well as waste collectables for garden waste, food waste and non-recyclables.
