Date set for green waste collections

First published in News

A PILOT garden waste collection project will be rolled out across parts of the Tendring district from May.

The two-year scheme will get under way in the Clacton area and will be extended to other parts of the district later in the year.

People living in the area will be offered the chance to take part in the new initiative, which will involve 25 fortnightly collections of garden rubbish from wheeled bins.

There will be an initial charge of £25 – to include the delivery of the wheeled bin – along with a £50 annual subscription.

The pilot scheme will cover about 19,000 homes and a review will take place after six months.

So Tendering will charge homeowners for services provided by other councils within their council tax allowance?

Good luck to the collection gangs, it will be a logistical nightmare for them. The scenario is that they can only collect from number 7, 16 & 42......poor old number 7 had his bin stolen. 16 had her bin moved by drunken idiots to outside number 28 so that cannot be collected and number 42 had their bin 6 inches inside the driveway boundary so could not be collected. Will it be a free service if you are on benefits? How can Colchester do this for all their residents without an additional charge?
