Bin rules reign ridicu­lous

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - John Thomp­son Rock­ing­ham

Th­ese new bins are ridicu­lous.

We are just a fam­ily of two on a cor­ner block and have al­ready re­ceived a warn­ing no­tice from Rock­ing­ham Waste Man­age­ment for com­pact­ing this lit­tle bin, in­di­cat­ing that if this per­sists, it will not be emp­tied. Since the roll-out for green waste (lime-lid bin now al­ready full await­ing start of col­lec­tion) doesn’t start un­til July for my area, what, in the mean­time do I do with my reg­u­lar house­hold and green waste?

Our coun­cil rates in­clude waste man­age­ment col­lec­tion ser­vices.

It al­ready ap­pears the coun­cil is not pro­vid­ing the ser­vice we are pay­ing for in our coun­cil rates.

Let us also not for­get how we need to save our pre­cious water, and yet we are be­ing asked to rinse all con­tain­ers be­fore they are put in the re­cy­cling bin.

I for one hope this will help all Rock­ing­ham res­i­dents re­duce next year’s waste man­age­ment rates charges.
