Recycling proposals are ill-conceived

In the Council's leaflet on Recycling Sites it says, '˜there are efficiencies that can be made and then proposes that the hours the sites are open should be reduced by 23 hours in the Winter and 33 in the Summer.

How can it be efficient to cram the same number of customers using the site into a much smaller access period?

The result of these ill-considered proposals will lead to long queues at the sites, increased customer frustration and much much more fly-tipping which will be made even worse by the charge for non household waste. I can look forward to even more rubbish being dumped in the lane behind my house and if it is rubble and I take it to the tip on my wheelbarrow, get charged for it.

A few years ago I asked the council to take away the sections of an old concrete coal bunker from my back garden. Citing health and safety they said I would need to haul the sections out into the lane before they’d take it. In the end I broke the sections into small parts and took them to the tip by the barrow-load which took over a month to do.(I don’t have a car.) Now they would want to charge me for each barrow-load.
