We the undersigned petition the council to Sort out the current bin collection problems, drop plans to charge for green waste collections and make a firm commitment to restoring a separate food waste collection service.
As a result of new bin collection arrangements introduced on 4 November 2018, collections are being missed across the borough, with some residents having no collections for several weeks. The backlog of collections is often leading to the council disposing of recyling along with general waste. In addition to plans to charge for green waste collections and stopping the separate food waste collection service, these changes are bad for the environment and will further cut the council’s recycling rate.
Labour councillors are proposing the petition on behalf of residents.
