I am absolutely delighted with the recycling service on Thursdays! I'm not sure who to thank, but it's made such a difference - firstly, our normal waste is reduced so that it doesn't matter that much if the city council doesn't turn up, and secondly, it's wonderful not to have to look for recycling depots for all the waste.  Nellien Brewer
