Just recently started paying for garden waste in Rotherham suppose it saves increasing everyone's council tax (although they'll just add it on to something else) think i pay £40 a year ,beats donning my dark clothes and balaclava and filling all the neighbours garden waste bins up the night before they're taken away ...on a separate note...looks like my local council are going to be going down the "charging" route for garden waste collections. Now I appreciate many local councils are struggling with funds in general (although a lot of them are using COVID as a big reason??? - and there was me thinking them investing in Iceland a few years back was a bigger reason...anyway I digress)
The local page on the council website states it's partly being done to "reduce musculoskeletal injuries suffered by staff collecting the waste" .....(my own garden waste collection normally consists of some branches for bushes and similar....and normally weighs less than our black bags)...
But then when you look at the document regarding the meeting about this....you notice a section where they say they could stop all garden waste collection altogether but "It will also not provide any additional income opportunity and there may be increased revenue costs required to manage any increase in fly-tipped waste"
Im sure they have already made their minds up either way and are just going through the motions to make it sound like there was ever going to be another option.....it seems Council tax is covering less and less these days even though it is slowly going up for the majority of people
My council tax is over £2000 and I have to pay for garden collection on top of that. And no, I don’t live in a mansion, a four bedroom detached but at the small end and squeezed into a small plot of land.
It is optional from my council. I think if it wasn’t they would have to declare it as part of the council tax, and then they would have broken the increase caps.So if your council charges extra for a garden waste bin, is it optional? Or as I suspect, everyone has to pay wether they use it or not?
Similar to this, I love the fact that the most searched term in Bing is 'Google'Microsoft Office 365 applications ignoring Windows' default browser setting. I've got Chrome set as my default browser, but in a number of places within the likes of Outlook, a 'link' to an external resource, like an email signature template, gets opened in Edge. Grrr.. Hate Edge.

Agreed, many companies abide by this, but many don’t.
