SKDC is now creating a charge for those of us doing the ‘green scene’ despite a fee having already been paid to be a green bin owner.
If only half of green bin users decide to pay the new fee, then there is likely to be a further 15,000 car journeys to the tip. Hardly green, is it? This charge represents approximately a 2% rate increase based on a D Band property.
I note that our super bright MP Nick Boles states that he supports the councils decision. He asks, how else would we replace the supposed £675,000? Might I suggest that the council becomes more efficient, instead of wasting taxpayers’ money on unnecessary and useless schemes such as the Westgate mess.
