Give workers the tools to deal with waste, street cleaning and flytipping…

Amey Van

Before 2010, aspects like waste, street cleaning, flytipping and grass cutting used to be done by the City Council.

You don’t mind paying MORE for your Brown Bin collection, do you?

Brown Bin - Peterborough

Yip! That’s right, the Tories at the Town Hall have decided that to help them balance their budget, they’re gonna charge YOU more for collecting the brown bin!

Put simply, it’s another schadenfreude policy from the Cons who run the City Council!

Why? Well, by recycling you are helping them reduce their fines for putting rubbish in landfill, so in a logical world you should be rewarded for your efforts, BUT not in Pottyboro, the city that aspires to be Environmental Capital, instead they charge you MORE for helping!

  • Oh, and they also want to charge YOU £25 if YOU lose any of YOUR bins or have them stolen.

PPS – If you know someone who votes Tory locally, maybe remind them not to in May this year?
