Your letters: Do we really need six bins for rubbish?

The latest set of EU rules which could mean we have to separate our rubbish into six different bins is ludicrous but sadly does not really surprise us.

It’s indicative of the meddling bureaucracy we have come to expect from the EU and its officials.

We know recycling is important and opinion polls tell us the British public realise its importance in many cases but it is farcical that we could end up with six bins.

Where do people house all these bins?

Will it mean collections are farther apart from each other as bin collectors will struggle to collect six bins weekly, or even fortnightly?

The whole proposal shows how disconnected these bureaucrats are from everyday working families in this country.
