Green Waste Collections

I had a chance to talk directly with Roger Ball today, he's the Head of Technical Services for the Council. Essentially he looks after everything that is maintenance related, including waste and recycling.

I asked him when we could expect to see the Green Waste bag collections return. He has given me a date of April 7th. Essentially, the underlying message was that the Council have run out of money this year to continue the scheme. Once the new financial year begins then the budget will allow the recommencement of the scheme.

Roger and his team have done a great job with a scheme which, let's face it, is flawed. At least he has been able to confirm a fresh start date.

Now, if you could all ask your plants to stop growing or creating any waste until then we'll all be fine.
