So is Switzerland's - a wee sticker on a black bag that you pre-sort. It's cheap and efficient. You may think it's cheap but my council tax (local tax) says it is not. Right now I pay £140/month to have my rubbish collected once very two weeks.
There is a vested interest somewhere.
The last UK government was hell bent on introducing id cards 0- which were to cost us £60 a head to own (under threat of a £1500 fine if we didn't have it on us). Turns out that the last leader of the labour party (Neil Kinnock - an EU Commissioner) was on the board of the company that had won the contract to supply these cards.
My question is genuine. Who owns the wheelie bin manufacturing company?

We have them here in Florida. What I found interesting is that each one has a serial number on it. And is assigned to a specific house/property. Now why in the world would they need to serialize a garbage can? They also weigh each can every time they dump (done automatically while the arm is lifting it into the truck). The only thing I could come up with here is if suddenly your garbage weight increased dramatically in a week's time, maybe your harboring illegals (also known as colonists).
