Labour Council’s Brown Bin charging shock

Our Labour Council is planning to charge residents £35 to empty the garden waste brown bins.

The proposal is buried in the Council’s Medium Term Financial Plan. It says the new charge should be introduced from April next year. They have completely dismissed the likelihood that people will simply put their garden waste in the black bin instead.

We are already getting increased complaints about dumped rubbish and neglected gardens since the Council started charging for domestic waste collection. These charges on top of Labour’s increases in Council tax will only make the situation worse in our view
