The Cambridge Evening News says:

Black bins will be collected once a fortnight from October.

The debate over scrapping weekly collections has been rumbling on for several months at the Guildhall but now officers have the green light to push ahead with the plans.

The council will also be bringing in a scheme to collect plastic from people's doorsteps for recycling at the same time.

From October, black bins will be collected one week and green bins the next, alongside the black box and plastic collections. The Liberal Democrat council leadership says the scheme is essential to encourage city residents to recycle more.

The city could be faced with tough Government fines if the council does not meet landfill targets.

This is what happens when the chattering classes run Europe. Recycling for recycling's sake.
