Tonight’s monthly meeting of the Woodview Residents’ Association in Edgbaston carried on the wheelie bin discussion which took place last month when Labour’s Cllr McKay attended.
Tonight’s discussion was prompted by a resident who wasn’t there last month, asking me if it was true there would be a £35 charge for green waste in future. I replied it was true that the Labour Council was introducing this, but that Edgbaston’s three Conservative Councillors were completely against it.
There then followed another discussion on waste disposal – with residents against the charge for green waste, against the ending of delivery of black and green bags, and against the introduction of wheelie bins. Not a single resident thought any of it was a good idea – and neither do I. Interestingly, the Labour representative who attends the meeting kept quiet and didn’t say a word on the subject tonight!
