Under my sink I have three separate plastic bags - one for card/paper, one for plastic, one for glass/metal. I take these bags out when they are full. Plastic is by far the quickest to fill each week, so I take this out once every four or five days.
To the left in the corner of the kitchen I have a dedicated organic waste bin with a foot pedal and lid. This is a very large bin with great access for scraping food into, and with the food pedal hygienic. I have never filled it up completely. I take this bag out once every two or three days as it really does smell bad after that amount of time.
