A very succinct review of the issues around the decisions to charge for green bin recycling. Kate is a City Councillor so has a great viewpoint for the detail of the proposals.
The highlight for me is that they have the great idea, but the implementation has had no thought whatsoever. How will the bin man know who has paid for what, and which of the green bins they come across has paid for the service.
In one parish Council meeting, City Cllr Andy Lewis stated that he believed that green bin recycling would rise with extra payments, though could not respond when I pointed out that surely most people would just use their black bin instead and save £36.
Lets also not forget also that this Tory Led council had complained about lack of funding from central government almost every year they have been in power, and now the very same Tories are complain that the council is too big and bloated? Did that bloating only happen on the 6th May 2010, or did they lead us there?
