The current Labour Southwark Council are introducing garden waste charging -[moderngov.southwark.gov.uk
Predicting net income of £330,000 pa.
See page 7 of this for the £30 per household for garden waste collections - [moderngov.southwark.gov.uk
Expect more garden waste fires to avoid this fee. and potentially more fly tipping.
Homes with gardens already typically pay more Council Tax than those without.
I would advise stocking up on garden waste bags ASAP. Expect a run on them and for them to be withdrawn soon.
Also plans for more street advertising, CPZ's, parking in parks, etc.
P.S. The Bulky Waste collection fee is also increasing from £16 to £18 - so expect more fly tipping from this as well.
