Waste collection is changing
As from June 2009 we're going to have new bins given to us by the council. Only 30 years behind countries like Germany or Denmark on this one, but hey, who is counting?
Breaking news (April 2009):
Why is the council introducing these changes?
Because like you, we are committed to reducing the impact of waste on the planet and more importantly, the amount of waste that we send to landfill. We are running out of landfill space and as we all know, waste harms the environment and contributes to global warming and pollution.
The new service will not only help us to achieve our environmental goals but also meet the tough recycling targets that the Government has set us. If we fail to meet these targets, the council will face huge fines that will ultimately come out of the taxpayers’ pocket. We are committed to ensuring this does not happen, so this new service is designed to guarantee we meet these targets with your help.
