In the recession some recyclable materials are piling up as the market price plummets.
The introduction of fortnightly bin collections in Waverley shortly before the 2007 Council elections was one reason our Party fared so badly in that election, especially as many residents believed the Tories were promising to bring back weekly collections. Even the Tories own website quotes one resident saying, “It was with hope that the Conservatives would make a significant change to the re-cycling arrangements that many people voted for them. This clearly is not going to happen and is very disappointing”.
Mike Simpson says, “The public feel misled by the Tories over waste collections. There is still a lot of anger on this issue especially in the recent winter weather when many bins were not emptied for 4 weeks! Local papers were full of complaints.”
