This is a storm in a teacup; VIEW POINTS.

HE Echo seems to be creating a storm in a teacup about Cardiff council's plans for fortnightly black bin collections ("Bin this crazy idea", Echo, January 8).

The only critical voices in the story were from opposition politicians and the whingers at the Taxpayers' Alliance. Most of the ordinary citizens of Cardiff to whom I speak have no problem with the idea. Cardiff is merely catching up with the rest of the country, where fortnightly black bin collections are common.

The only worry is from seagulls ripping open bags - but given that seagulls attack food waste, which will still be collected weekly and will now be housed in plastic caddies in areas with bag collections rather than wheelie bins, what's the problem?
