    Will they pick it up or ignore if there is a bit to much?

    If it's the Green Bin I would suggest putting the excess in a plastic bag beside it (which stops stuff blowing away which can happen if the lid is not down properly) - they normally will pick up extra re-cycling where I am.

    Ring Panda and ask for extra recycling sacks. They will send them out to you FOC. I always have a few spare going. They prefer you use their sacks as they are clear and then it can be seen easily that the contents are recyclable. But failing that a white bin liner would probably be accepted the odd time.

    Do they chage you extra for picking up the extra sack?

    no charge - there is no charge for picking up your green bin anyway, it is included in your yearly fee, so they don't charge for the extra bag.

    I simply put the excess in a bag and put it in the shed. Following collection, I then place the excess in the bin for the next collection. Obviously that only works for "one-offs" and not if your bin is constantly over-full.
