Revenge of the Bin Men

Monday 2 March 9:00pm on C4

It used to be so simple: you put out your rubbish and the bin men took it away. Not any more. War has broken out between the people who are putting out too much rubbish and the councils whose job it is to dispose of it all. As landfill space runs out and the government increases recycling targets, town halls across the country are getting tough about recycling, fly-tipping and litter. They’re tracking down bin delinquents and making them pay. And the public are fighting back. This Cutting Edge film follows the men and women on both sides of the battle.
