    “ The volume of waste produced in the UK has plummeted during the coronavirus lockdown — a trend that may have environmental benefits, but is devastating for many waste collection businesses.

    Although households have been producing about 20 per cent more rubbish than usual over the period because people are at home, the level of commercial waste has dropped by around 50 per cent because of closed businesses, said Mr Scanlon, echoing similar figures from other companies.“

    There's a couple down the road from us, and every week we play a game "guess how many bin bags they've put out this week?". Bear in mind, this is just 2 adults, no kids.

    Most weeks it's about 5 or 6 bags. The least we ever counted was 4, and the most was 11.

    It's actually gone down a bit during the lockdown.

    I've been half tempted to steal the bags and see WTF it is they're throwing out.

    I struggle to fill one bag of landfill waste a week. I have more recycling due to all the online shopping and gin drinking (there is no obvious causal relationship between the two)

    Skips were closed, collections erratic and conclusion they make that we produce less garbage?

    They should check peeps gardens or spare bedrooms.
