Well they did, but you need to renew your licence every year.

Anyone who didn't will have their bin removed.

They took mine away ages ago, but i simply just put any brown bin waste in neighbours bins and if they ask me about it, blame it on others in the street.

Why is that not a surprise? Troll online, antisocial in real life.

Is anyone else's garden waste not being collected? We purchased the subscription 3 weeks ago and still not received the sticker, but FAQS suggest a computer system gets updated so collection can occur sooner.

It is £30.00 and covers a full year 12 months.

Collection every week

Thanks for your reply. I looked at the Southwark website and noticed that the 12 month period runs from March to April. So you still pay the same amount for 1 month or 12 months. That is ludicrous.

To be fair to Southwark (and I very rarely write that) in the first fiscal year of operation when they started very late they did reduce the fee pro rata. For most people, having signed up once, the council expected them to sign-up again at the start of the fiscal - so having just one price (for 12 months) made bureaucratic sense (they didn't have to build in software for a sliding scale - as logic would always start the 'year' at the beginning of the council's fiscal year). Remember any price changes are implemented then following council votes for the budget.

I think paying pro-rata for months left to April would certainly be fairer - but might be overly complex for a council who are signally poor at their own CPZ charge management.

If you could ring up and speak to a person in "The Office" how difficult would it be to do it on the phone as you speak?
