Just a few questions about the £25 bin collection charge:
How are the charges going to be levied? Send out bills to everyone and then give the collectors a list of properties who have paid?
Charge everyone regardless? Has the cost of managing the payments and micro-managing the collections and the increase in fly-tipping been taken into account with the savings?
Basically I suggest that the service is boycotted if it is charged for.
If the charge gets through I will opt out, continue to home compost what we can and then incinerate the rest.
Not very enviromentally friendly though.
