I do not understand Council's stand on garbage at all. On a normal week you don't even have to try to meet the 1 bag limit - I am a half assed recycler / green bin user at best, with a family of 4, 2 kids in diapers and a dog - and we would be hard pressed to use more than 1 bag every 2 weeks.

The problem is when I clean out the basement or garage and have a few extra bags and some random junk to get rid of. I find myself stockpiling my junk for weeks at the side of my house until I think I have more than 100 kg.

Unless its garden soil (not supposed to go in the green bin or bags - has to go into the garbage) - a few bins of garden soil ends up costing $50 or more to get rid of - and I have been seriously tempted to just dump it off the side of the escarpment on more than one occasion.

I suspect that the transfer fee structure is the problem. That and the elimination of bulk item pickup.
