How Often Do You Recycle?

Charles Clover in The Sunday Times has a thoughtful article about recycling. He says this.

There is an even more substantial obstacle to progress over the road in the shape of Eric Pickles, the communities secretary. Statistics show the best local authorities for recycling have certain things in common — one of them being fortnightly refuse collections. Despite all the evidence, Pickles gives grants to councils that keep weekly collections.

My council, Hackney, collects weekly, where they empty my wheelie bin and collect my green sack of recyclables.

But over the last couple months, I’ve happened to be out on bin day, so I make sure I put out the rubbish at least one week in two.

So is that fortnightly?
