Wheelie useful?

The bin farm - they all fitted fine beforeWe recently had our wheelie bins swapped around, as per Lewisham Council's new drive to get residents to recycle more and throw away less. There's more information on the Recycle for Lewisham blog. [Brockley Nick adds - or read Nigel Tyrell's excellent explanation of the Council's approach here]

We're glad to be getting more recycling bins - our old one was always full. Only thing is, our house (consisting of 6 flats) now has far too many bins. It seems like we've had a net gain in bin capacity, and it's looking a bit unsightly.

We wondered if any readers had similar experiences, and what your thoughts are on the new bin replacement strategy?
