OK, penguins... the following occurred to me...
our rubbish is collected as
a) food waste (weekly)
b) recycleable stuff, non sorted (fortnightly) - with leaflets telling us that we should put plastic in even if it says non-recycleable because they can do magic with some of it
c) land fill (fortnightly)
[also 'garden waste' fortnightly if you pay extra]

But given that they don't want the recycleable stuff sorted because they sort it, when not just divide things up into
a) food waste
b) gross / insanitary / small stuff that would get in the way of sorting
c) everything else

and have them do the sorting into recycleable / not, given that (a) I assume they have to do this anyway (b) the rules are somewhat opaque (c) presumably more would get recycled

Being a nice middle class area I suspect most stuff gets recycled anyway - quite often not many land fill bins get put out.
