Big Gov.

In Once-Great Britain, those who want to comply with onerous waste recycling rules must use up to nine separate bags and bins, or face fines for non-compliance.

The containers include a silver slopbucket for food waste, which is then tipped in to a larger, green outdoor food bin, a pink bag for plastic bottles, a green bag for cardboard, and a white bag for clothing and textiles.

Paper and magazines go in blue bags, garden waste in a wheelie bin with a brown lid, while glass, foil, tins and empty aerosols should go in a blue box, with a grey wheelie bin for non-recyclable waste."

Also, the trash is collected less frequently. Higher costs, worse service, all mandatory; progressive governance at work.
