(46463x5)x26=6,040,190
(45763x5)x26=5,949,190
(45261x5)x26=5,883,930
(44998x5)x26=5,849,740
(44601x5)x26=5,798,130
(1290x4)x52=268,320
(1250x4)x52=260,000
(1210x4)x52=251,680
(1190x4)x52=247,520
(1179x4)x52=245,232

Each domestic property has 5 bins, each one serviced every fortnight, hence:
Number of properties x5 = total number of bins x 26 = total number of domestic bins collected per year

Each commercial property has (on average) 4 bins, each one being serviced weekly, hence:
Number of customers x 4= total number of bins x 52 = total number of commercial bins collected per year.
