Luton’s Labour run Council are introducing charges for the collection of bulky household waste from April 2014.
The decision is a dumper’s charter and a danger to health.
Charging people £25 to collect their old sofa or fridge simply means many who cannot afford to pay, or just refuse to pay, will dump their old furniture wherever they think they can get away with it. Add on the fact that they have sacked many of the street cleaners and it’s easy to see the town is going to look like a dump.
Luton Council will have to do the clearing up so there’s a good chance it will cost more in the end and meanwhile we all have to put up with a disgusting mess.
