I am not sure. But if it is inconveniencing you then I would be happy to look into getting yours removed asap. Email me with your address etc.
I’m really sorry to hear you’ve had a negative experience with this. Can you forward the email you sent to me and I will then chase it up and make sure you get an adequate response.
When you say that the document ‘talks about’ making garden waste collections free do you mean this line?
“We will consult on the provision of free garden waste collections for households with gardens and seek views on the impacts and costs for local authorities so these can be taken into account in assessment of new burdens.”
It seems to suggest that following consultation with local authorities they might consider providing additional funding to cover the cost of providing the service for free. Were this to happen I am sure that the council would change its policy. The introduction of the charge is a result of the terrible cuts to local authorities from central government.
