BIN CLAIMS ARE UNACCEPTABLE
I FIND the accusations that the new bin collection procedures from local council tax payers are ‘confusing and bewildering’ (‘Teams aim to beat bin bewilderment’, June 8) as totally unacceptable, and the further suggestion that they have been devised by ‘a mad scientist’ as absolutely ridiculous and quite insulting to those who have worked hard in implementing the new system.
I am afraid I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I found the accompanying instruction pack with its personal calender for collection days issued to every household comprehensive and easily understandable.
The new scheme with its extra twin bins replacing the bag/box system is a far more sensible and superior idea. It will prevent rubbish being blown away on windy days with waste contained securely in the bins provided.
I applaud the council for their implementation and delivery to thousands of households. Let’s give credit where it is due, it is too easy to be critical.
My only concern is for those residents occupying terraced property who will have great difficulty accommodating the extra bins. At the end of the day I do hope the council inform us of any improvement that is achieved in the recycling rate under the new system. Jim Oldcorn Ridgeway Great Harwood
