Readers’ comments about the idea of charging for green bin collections.
I think it’s fair enough. Money has to be saved or raised somehow, and on the whole I think that anyone who has a garden large enough to need a regular green waste collection would probably not worry about a £15 or £22.50 charge to cover the whole season. Although at the same time it could be self-defeating, if a lot of people decide to just take their green waste to the tip instead - James Hardaker.
Since I don’t have green waste, in theory I should support this, but I don’t. If people have to pay, they’ll just set fire to it instead and no-one wins with more bonfires stinking and smoking up the place - Peter Cooper.
