    If they are still going to take kitchen waste in the green bin, what's to stop you hiding your garden waste under some potato peelings? If I'm throwing away lettuces gone to seed, is that garden or kitchen waste? It's totally unenforceable . Don't pay!

    Shouldn't those who don't want a green bin and will be refusing to "opt in", actually get a refund of £50 on their tax bill ? After all, if the service is now valued at £50 per household per year, then by not using the service surely we are due a £50 a year refund?

      No, because when you opt in for the green bin, you pay an extra £50 on top of your Council Tax.

    Not a problem for those of us who don't have gardens, not that that was a choice given the rent prices around this shithole.
