The results of the recent consultation on changes to waste collections from Autumn 2019 are in! Thanks to a large number of responses communicating very strong feeling, CBC have decided to shelve two of their most controversial suggestions. Black bins will continue to be collected fortnightly (for now), and no charges will be intro­duced for garden waste collection. They have also said that there is to be a choice of reusable bags or wheelie bin for garden waste, and that they will continue to consider kerbside glass collection for the future. Power to the people.
