‘Surely we already pay to empty green bins via Council Tax?’

EDITOR - Surely this is a mistake. To say the current green bin collections are free is simply wrong.

We already pay for this service within our council tax payments and any proposed increases are simply a way of increasing the council tax.

I went on to the website in order to add my voice to the consultation but the survey only allows for answers to very specific questions.

It does not allow for comments. For example, how are people without transport able to travel to waste sites if they do not/cannot pay additional charges? Not all green waste is suitable for home composting so what is to happen to that?

It seems that, as ever, decisions have been made and that the council do not really want to know what council tax payers really think.
