Can I please have my bags back?

While I appreciate they are on a tight schedule with many streets to cover each day, it would be nice if the council’s recycling collectors could leave emptied recycling boxes and bags outside the property they picked them up from.

Every Monday evening I have to go hunting up and down my street to retrieve these items, or what I think are mine, sometimes without success. So far I’m a red box lid and three white bags down and will soon have to resort to pinching a neighbour’s.
