Massive opposition to green bin charges and reduced bin emptying frequencies
Over 2700 residents have signed the petition objecting to green bin emptying charges and a possible reduction in grey bin emptying frequency (to every 3 or 4 weeks).
The signatures were obtained in a “door to door” campaign conducted mainly on the west of the city.
The petition can now be signed “on line” (click). Internet access to the petition was suspended during the election campaign.
The proposed changes to bin emptying arrangements were first promoted by Labour Councillors at the beginning of the year.
They authorised a – largely bogus – consultation exercise about options but failed to report the results of the opinion survey.
The bins petition will now be presented to the next ordinary Council meeting which is scheduled to take place on 16th July.
