Bryn the Bin rubbishes 'pay to throw' idea...

Good to hear Brynley on BBC Five Live this morning robustly putting the case against the idea of 'pay to throw' your rubbish. The idea that local councils should charge individuals according to the amount of waste in their bins is being promoted by a so called 'think-tank' (or should that be think-bin?).

Brynley regularly contributes to this blog and 'hit the headlines' when he removed the electronic 'chip' in his new wheelie bin and sent it back to South Kesteven District Council.

This morning on 5Live, he dismissed the idea of 'pay to throw' as unworkable, suggesting that well-heeled people who eat out would pay less than a less well-off mother with several children who disposed of nappies in the rubbish.

Brynley was very persuasive, but I'm sure we haven't heard the last of 'pay to throw'.
