As much as I'd love to see bi-weekly pickups (my house puts out less than a bag most weeks), I really can't see this go over well if instituted by council. Most of my neighbours are still struggling with the bag limits, and this would be, in the purest sense, a service cut.

We need more creative solutions to this, and ones which are well-rooted in communities, not 'handed down' from authorities. I totally support more community consultation for this reason, and I would probably come to speak in favour of bi-weekly pickups. But if there's a clear majority against it, I'm not going to insist that it happen anyway. Democracy is important, and we don't need to give people any more reasons to see "environmentalists" as another group of people trying to force things on them.
