Are you sure they wont take extra cardboard? We often have extra and theyve always taken it. 
It doesnt make sense for them to be funny about people doing too much recycling!

100% , we tried 3 collections in a row and was left at the side of the empty bin even when the box was placed on the bin lid..

When the council only empty the black wheelie bins every fortnight , what do you expect people to do with their rubbish once the bin is full ? 

A bit of a query with black bins. Over the last few months I have now seen two residences with two black bins each. They are both outside on collection day boldly displayed with the house numbers, so what has happened, are you allowed two black bins now ?

I think its a size of the family thing , I know if you have 4 adults in one address you are allowed one of the large bins . It could be they have 2 because of that ?

I can add to this as this issue has happened to me. The blue boxes were good and you could fill with cardboard and ask for another and they would give you one , you could even stack cardboard neatly and they would take it. Now since we got a blue bin that is far smaller in size than the old blue boxes we can't get as much in. You put the extra cardboard out as before all stacked nice and neat and they now won't take it..

 

What options are you then left with ???

 

I now have to burn the excess card that won't be collected by the council. I did leave it for ages in the old blue boxes and put bits in as and when I could but this started to attract vermin living in the boxes. 

 

I have no other choice than to burn what they won't take and I can't store because of the rats. Its burnt in a steel bin and controlled which happens 2 times a week , when we had the blue boxes we didn't burn not a once. 

Are you a cardboard manuafcturing business from your home? Where does it all come from?

Why not ?

We could try burning some near you if you want and I'm sure you'll soon get the idea.

Because "it doesn't harm the air anymore than car fumes do) does that mean we should let peple do it or should we be stopping that, trying to drive less and reducing fumes from cars?

Nope , Microtainer contact-activated lancet boxes we have to pack for NHS for after-hours homework.

I'm not quite with you. It seems as though this is for business ie NHS so its not domestic waste and should not go in domestic waste bin.
