The scheme would see householders charged according to the weight of all non-recyclable waste they put out for collection each week. Green waste recyclable paper, metal and glass, for example would still be taken away for free.

Look for many "unofficial" dump sites to spring up....
well, IIRC rubbish bags were already subject to council tax at their purchase, so implementing some weight scheme might not be too onerous in Airfield One.
No way will that ever work.
Civilization and Public Health took leaps forward when cities learned to get their waste as far away as possible.
Here's to the decline of European Civilization

Wouldn't this just encourage one to deposit their rubbish in the Moslem neighbors bin?

We have been doing that for awhile now in my town. (Scituate Mass.)
You buy trash bags from the town that are blue with the town name on the bag. They cost a dollar a bag.
When you go to the dump you can put all the recyclables in bins but the food garbage goes in the bags and has to be put into a separate bin.
Usually you use 2-3 bags a week. - tom
