Ryedale green bin service to resume

Gazette & Herald: Ryedale green bin service to resume Ryedale green bin service to resume

Garden waste collections in Ryedale will resume next week following the winter break.

Collections of garden waste will alternate with refuse collections until June.

The garden waste service then becomes chargeable and residents will have the option to subscribe for the service or not.

A licence to continue with garden waste recycling costs £27 for the period June 2014 to March 2015. From April 2015 to March 2016 the charge will be £36.

Residents will receive a letter and information regarding the changes.

The ruling tory group and the local media will completely ignore this charge, equivalent to almost 20% on Council Tax, when they announce no Council Tax rise next week!

No chance, they have their taxpayer funded I-pads and free annual meal to think of.

Why do you think the leader of RDC is so supportive of CCTV?

The Council used the introduction of a green collection as a reason to reduce to fortnightly collection for main waste.
Now they want to charge for the collection.
So let's see, that's half as much collected each week and an extra charge if you want more.
What a bunch of con artists.
For sure they have taken the strain and failed.
Not living in the real world.
Too busy getting rid of our elected MP.
Role on UKIP

Doesn't this mean people will put their garden waste in the normal waste bin rather than pay the extra charge? Therefor reversing the initiative mentioned in above comment of reducing household waste!

you are far too intelligent to be considered as a tory Council candidate.

Well it can't be easy finding these cuts and an elected councillors lot is not well paid (except for the corrupt ones with land or business interests) so maybe this is sensible and fair and we are being harsh - but you are right that it needs to be weighed in with the politicking over taxes. Then again labour were masters of the stealth tax and spin and UKIP are just starting to work on getting a proper manifesto with figures that try to add up.
