Councils are partly responsible for the disgusting state of some of our estates, roads, streets and country in general by making it awkward for us to get rid of rubbish.

Sod recycling, this is just a way for someone to make money out of everyone.

We have bags for recycling which we have to sort into seperate paper/card only and bottles/cans only, then a small bin for food waste and a bigger bin for stuff we can't recycle. We had a nice big bin for general waste, then some kids came along one night and rounded up the bins off the street, piled them up in a car park and set them alight. I have no idea why but it seems to be a trend around this area. The replacement general refuse bin is only slightly larger than the food waste one and although I do recycle there's still a lot of general stuff to go out as its only collected every two weeks. The council has taken people to court for contaminated bags (whatever that means) and people have been fined £400 for it. Now everyone has their bins fixed to the walls of their houses. The council wanted them all off the street until collection day which means either taking your bin to the end of the street and down the back lane or through your house, its a long terrace on a steep hill which is steeper along the back lane, we all refused, hence they are still on the pavement.

There's now talk of fines of up to £2,000 and the threat of criminal convictions for putting bins out too early, removing them too late, overfilling them, leaving lids open, making a simple mistake in trying to comply with the long and complicated list of rules 'n' regs regarding what should go in which bin and what shouldn't.

Council taxpayers, like motorists, are regarded as no more than a convenient cash cow to satisfy the voracious financial appetite of local authorities, most of which are serially  incompetent, inefficient and profligate.

The pompous, posturing nonentities who seem to be the most adept at getting a council seat and the attached generous allowances and expenses, mainly by being a sycophantic yes-man or woman to one political party or another, need to realise that they have been elected by the rest of us to represent our interests and ensure that we get value for our heavy property taxes, and not so that they can feather their own nests.

And the jumped-up little town hall Hitlers who run those aggressive, bullying, Stasi-like departments need to learn that they are our paid (one might say overpaid) servants - and not the other way round.

You've hit the mark there, overpaid and pompous jobs worth most definately, it amazes me how much the counter jumpers get paid, while those that actually do the work get minimum wage and the least pay rise possible while these posturing prats get paid well and get double figure pay rises. Just like our beloved mp's lovely pay rises while the workers get austerity.
