Cutting Edge - Revenge of the Bin Men
Monday, 2nd March 2009
9pm to 10pm
War has broken out between those putting out too much rubbish and the councils whose job it is to dispose of it all. Cutting Edge follows the men and women on both sides of the battle.
As landfill space runs out and the government increases recycling targets, town halls across the country are getting tough about recycling, fly-tipping and litter. They're tracking down bin delinquents and making them pay. And the public are fighting back.
The programme meets the Hampshire resident determined to stop his local council introducing smaller bins, as he encourages his fellow residents to support his struggle and eventually has a showdown with his nemesis: the local Head of Environmental Health.
In Worcester, no piece of rubbish is too small to escape the attention of Alan Price, who is single-handedly responsible for 80% of the city's penalty notices.
On the other hand, there's the West Yorkshire resident who ended up in court when he was caught on CCTV emptying his wheelie bin in the lobby of the town hall in protest at the bin men refusing to take his rubbish away.
Where things have gone sour between bin men and the public, it's usually prompted by the new regulations and the clampdown on what the bin men can and can't take away. The programme also meets the men doing the job many of us wouldn't want to do: the bin men themselves.
