Three weekly bin collections?
Reducing domestic refuse collections have been seen as an easy way of reducing costs for local authorities. Taking rubbish away every three weeks is now a reality for over 1 million residents in areas like Wigan and Leicestershire, but will Telford & Wrekin adopt the service reductions?
There is no doubt about the council’s desire to cut costs, having passed services such as libraries and environmental services to parish & town councils. It seems that extending the gap between bin collections is a step too far, and Telford & Wrekin Council have said a firm NO to three weekly collections.
