last year for an additional November collection. The then Labour-run Council Group refused this request.
After Labour lost their majority on the Council last October, the Lib Dem Council Leader sent a joint letter from Opposition Councillors repeating the request for an extra green bin collection. While it was too late to organise this for November, all households with garden waste collections will get one additional collection in January 2015.
The collections will be in the weeks starting 19 and 26 January 2015.
Collections are on your usual recycling collection day.
If you still have Christmas trees to dispose of these can be chopped up and put in your green bin.
Thank you for continuing to use the recycling facilities we set up when we ran the Council. Liberal Democrats are committed to getting back to the recycling rates we achieved then.
Sadly these rates have declined in the last 3 years.
