With apologies to my friends in the Green Party, but any claims the Lib Dem / Tory Coalition Council may wish to make about being a "green council" vanished today with the arrival of their letter demanding a payment for the future collection of green bins.
This is nothing less than a green tax of the worst kind!
Cllr Sarah Hacker has the details, but essentially it's phone now to cancel, but be quick - 0800 834 035 - or else pay up later, at £22.50 per bin.
They say, as an alternative their ending the free kerbside collection, we can all drive our green waste down to the council's waste centre: start your engines and form a queue here! Very green!
