Street recycling bins. Nice in theory, but good in practice?

A quick look on the Council website today shows that the news story of the day for them appears to be the launch of new street recycling bins. Now we at GreenwichWatch are actually a bunch of green tree-hugging hippies so we think this idea is a really good one, encouraging recycling is very important.

However, we also have practical heads on our shoulders and doubt whether the bins will actually be successful. Cleansweep, the company that's responsible for emptying the bins, doesn't do it often enough to ensure that kebabs and chilli sauce won't end up in the wrong side. Still, if there is chilli sauce in the paper compartment at least it might stop it going up in smoke when a hoodie drops a fag-end in one.

I keep meaning to do these bins on my site - they look horrible, don't they? Are they a cheap and nasty job lot?

I love the fact the ones in Woolwich have a big board on top with the word "WOOLWICH" on as well. They look like they've been dumped there!
