LETTER: Rubbish bins will overflow

What’s happening... collect my rubbish every other week, I hope not.

You will have a wheely bin, you will have a green waste bin for recycling garden waste, you will have a blue top bin for recycling cardboard, tins and glass etc, you will put them out for 7am, you will pay £29 for the pleasure of having your green waste removed...

Come on HDC, give me a break.

My general waste bin is often full up in a week, I recycle as much as I can, can’t remember the last time a tin went in that bin.

To now have to wait 14 days for each collection, well, HDC please tell me what to do with the rubbish when the bin is full and there’s still days to go before next collection?

I expect it will save you money but I doubt if my council rates will ever go down when that saving is made.

I always thought it was a cheek to have to pay for green waste to be collected.

I opted out, I don’t have much green waste and when I do I take it to the tip ( don’t get me started on that fiasco, queueing and wasting my petrol... but I’m sure you will sort that debacle out soon).

I would have understood if you had asked me to pay for normal waste to be collected, £29 would have been a bargain.

I understand it costs to get rid of that rubbish and that all the holes in the ground are nearly full.

Please think about things fully before just going ahead.

And if you don’t go ahead, why allow headlines like I’ve just read to appear... it just winds us up.
