Lib Dems will Continue to Defend of Weekly Bin Collection

Local Lib Dems in the Royal Borough have pledged to continue their longstanding defence of weekly rubbish collections. Throughout the last 20 years while neighbouring Conservative councils moved to fortnightly collections or alternate week rubbish / recycling Lib Dems in the Royal Borough have defended weekly collections.

“As the Cabinet member responsible for bin collections in the last Lib Dem Administration I have always been clear that weekly collections are what works for my family, and for our borough. With a growing family and lots of nappies, any move away from weekly collections by the Conservative Council would be a nightmare.”

says Cllr Simon Werner, leader of the Royal Borough Lib Dems.

The 2011 Lib Dem Manifesto reasserts the Lib Dems committment to weekly rubbish collections. In 2007, we promised:

“Local Lib Dems will keep weekly rubbish collections”

The 2011 Lib Dem manifesto keeps this pledge:

“We will keep a weekly bin collection”

and strengthens it to include a promise to pass a motion to keep weekly rubbish collections within the first 100 days of a Lib Dem Council.

We have also said we will extend the range of recyclables collected from kerbside to help keep down the punishing cost of landfill taxes and preserve our countryside at the same time. This extension will start with Kitchen Waste and Tetra Packs.
