Cambridge News reports that East Cambridgeshire District Council is one step closer to approving the roll-out of wheelie bins as part of their waste management. Do we think such a move is good for our village? We recall that one Devon woman did not think so in her own case. It appears from the news report that should the council get government approval—expected from mid October onwards—a survey would be carried out to identify those homes not suitable for such a service. Such homes would then retain the existing black-box collection service. It is not yet clear what criteria would be used to mark a property as suitable.

Do you think this is a good idea? Do you wish to praise the council for their initiative? Let the council know your feelings. Contact the council using their form.
