Allow larger families a bigger dustbin!

This petition had 479 supporters

I'm all for recycling and we do, but we are a family of 7 and since the bin collection changed from weekly to fortnightly, our bin is full with AT LEAST 5-6 black bags each 2 weeks extra...we have to pay £40 every 2 weeks for a man with a van to collect the remainder of our rubbish...if its left too long pests become a problem.

Surely Chelmsford borough Council and in fact other councils too, could give larger families bigger bins? Or even two smaller ones? I understand the whole point is to get families to recycle but I feel it is unfair to penalise families that do, but are still finding it difficult to waste control.

I would like for Chelmsford Borough Council to re-consider their decision not give larger bins to larger families...or even re-consider the fortnightly bin collection all together!
