THE COUNCIL NO LONGER SUPPLY BLACK OR GREEN BAGS
There have been articles in the newspapers, in the Forward and on my blog and I have now been informed there will be further reminders in the future.
This situation has partly come about due to the huge cuts in Council funding from the Government (10% further cuts announced only recently) It was not an easy decision to make.
It is also likely following consultation, a £35 charge will be made for green waste collection at some point in the future
Bags can be purchased from supermarkets and £1 shops through out the area.
On a brighter note Council tax has not been raised this year to take account for the ever rising inflation rates (now 3.1%) which would have meant an extra average £30 for many people.
I have asked the Council to remind residents they must buy their own bags in future.
