More garden refuse bins needed

I write in reference to recent discussions about refuse and recycling collections,

On October 1, I went to the information centre to request a brown bin for disposal of garden waste. I was told there was a waiting list of 116 people. I registered my name and later telephoned the Recycling and Waste Services office who confirmed there is a waiting list and bins only beoame availible when someone ends thier contract.

I asked if more bins could be purchased but was told that was not possible as they did not have sufficient collection facilities.

At this rate how long will it be before I am offered a brown bin? I think I may have a long wait!

Could not this scheme be expanded?
