Time to weed out services

Share this article

Having just paid £120 for a small two-cubic-metre skip to take away garden waste, I’d suggest that Rother stops the brown bins all together or at least put it on a commercial basis.

Unlike household waste where there may be a health hazard or recycling waste where there is a commercial use, brown bins serve no purpose.

This is no more than an indirect subsidy to gardeners when the monies generated from a commercially sensible level could be spent on real issues like the pot holes to which one reader points.

If your readers want better services from the district council, perhaps they should start by weeding out these subsidy seeking services.
