Further to my last post on green waste collections, I have learned that Labour controlled Oxford are introducing a green waste charge of £35 per annum. Reading’s charge of £22.50 therefore is considerably cheaper.
I have read Reading Labour’s pledge to “review the green bin fiasco” (page 2 Labour’s manifesto). They have omitted to say whether they agree with their Labour colleagues in Oxford and would want to raise the charge to £35. They have failed to commit to scrapping charging the scheme.
It makes you think! Have a look at this
