People living in Somerset could move to a three-weekly bin collection service next year - in a bid to try to encourage residents to recycle more and save about £1.7 million.
At the moment, non-recyclable waste in the region is collected every fortnight.
It's certainly something that has got viewers talking on our social media pages:
If they did that I'd need a bin twice the size. Plus I live next to a river and they are not thinking about the rats / mice / maggots and flies and the stink that might come in the summer.
People with more than two bins per household overfill their bins on a two weekly collection, so going three weekly will just mean a lot more bags out to compensate ...
Several viewers wondered whether the reduced collections might also lead to a cut in council tax.
Presumably it will reflect in a reduction in our council tax for the reduced service that we are paying for?
But not everyone disagreed with the proposal:
But aren't they going to be able to recycle more items? So that lets them put less in the black bin...
We've delving back to 2007 for our first countdown - and into the Santa Olympics at Wookey Hole in Somerset.
See if you can spot a familiar face...
