YOUR story says: “City bosses will spend £3 million on replacing more than 9000 polemounted and old-style free-standing bins with new 140-litre and 360-litre containers.
“It’s all in a bid to save £60,000 a year, which would normally be spent on buying 854,000 plastic sacks for smaller bins.’’
I’m not objecting to changing the size of bins, but if the idea is really to save £60,000 a year on bags by spending £3m, it will take 50 years of saving £60,000 to recover the outlay for the new bins. Will they even last for 50 years? Ronnie Simpson, posted online
