With fortnightly bin collection now the norm throughout the UK, there will soon be a new option available- at a price. Private bin men are being recruited to offer a stand-in service on alternative weeks and anyone with a van can apply.
Full training, uniform and materials will be supplied as long as you own your own transit van but it will need to meet stringent health and safety regs and any mods will need to be met by the owner of the vehicle.
In return, these new "mobile, recycling-opportunity inspectors" can then levy their own fees for picking up recyclable rubbish from their neighbours before taking it to the local dump.
However, be warned. They will also have the authority to check through your waste to ensure all materials are recyclable and if if, they will be able to issue fines.
Anyone wishing to apply should make enquires at their Town Hall.
