Surely Council Tax is for services provided by the Local Authority ?

I thought we were doing them a favour providing free composting material which they then sell on after processing. Seeing as I only use mine about four times a year I think I can live without it - like we used to.

The Brown Bin Collections are not even all year round if i remember correctly. This is surely going to spill over in to peoples green bins.

35 is way over the top.
The garden waste goes to be recycled into energy somewhere between here and chester if i remember.

There seems to be a lot of back handed tax going on at the moment.

Ok you pay 35 whats to stop a Naughty Neigbour or a Kid dumping there green waste into your brown bin. This is where its going to get stupid. If i was paying for that service i would be very very wary of 1. My Bin Bin Out side while i was at work. 2. If i'm at work whos to stop the opportunist to dump there cuttings into my bin.

Scrap the Bin Service.
We should all just go back to throwing everything in the one bin.

I am sure we can GUARANTEE the "bin spies" will be out looking for folk putting garden stuff in the green bins. Personally I have padlocks on my bins until the days I put them out - otherwise I get dog muck bags dumped in there.

I suppose anyone with a garden will have to subscribe to it. Probably resulting from the little 'questionaire' we were all requested to fill in. No doubt, those without a garden couldn't see why they should pay towards the service of those who used it. It doesn't mean to say that anyone will get any refund for not having one.
Hey ho! Yes, I'm sure we'll pay it and if they then put a cost on the brown and the green bins, so be it. We'll all be in it together!!

How are they going to monitor it? The cost of monitoring the whole of Wirral, whether they have paid their 35 per year or not, is likely to cost more to implement than the service itself! Or does anyone know how it will be done?

Back to Plan A, dumping the grass cuttings in the compost heap. Rarely use the brown bin- just for leaves in Autumn.

I have had mine emptied twice in the last 28 weeks, which would mean on average I would be paying 8.75 per empty. They love to ignore my bin.

Its a shit service.
