LETTER: Misery for the poorer families

Fortnightly waste collections will discriminate against people without gardens and cars.

Where are they going to store rubbish for two weeks or put composting bins? Most councils with fortnightly collections also provide food waste bins which are collected for compost but not HDC.

We all have times when visitors and events mean that the waste bin gets full quickly meaning a trip to the local tip but what do you do if you haven’t got a car and it’s two weeks until refuse collection day?

This seems to be a cynical money saving exercise and nothing to do with increasing recycling, no wonder the changes are not being subject to public consultation!

The result will be an increase in fly-tipping, misery for poorer families and an increase in the rat population.
