While we applaud the Highland Council for finally jumping on to the recycling bandwagon (only cos they had to, thanks to the EU) it's a shame that the stuff is only going to be collected once a fortnight. Have the Council underestimated the amount of stuff that could be recycled? Our box is already nearly full and we've only had it 2 days!. There are only two of us in the household, if you were in a bigger household and were diligently recycling all the appropriate waste you would certainly need more than one box.The limited collection may put people off as, once their boxes are filled, they won't want to have the recycling items lying about for 2 weeks at a time - they'll just stick them in their normal bin.Kind of defeats the object?Hopefully the Council will review the situation once it's up and running.
