Green waste collection

We the undersigned petition the council to consider the option set out below as an alternative to the proposed chargeable green-waste collection service based on wheely-bins. We believe it would be cheaper, more acceptable to many residents and more environment-friendly.

• Let residents buy security tags like these http://www.universeal.co.uk/tracewaste-tear-off-seal in the same way we buy visitor parking permits.
• Continue to the use the plastic hessian green-waste bags.
• Residents can put out as many bags of green waste as they want, attaching a seal to the handle of each bag.
• Veolia only empty bags with tags attached and remove the tags after emptying the bag.
• Residents can buy extra bags or tags when they need them.
• This reuses existing bags, is cheaper, easier, is more environment-friendly as it doesn’t use huge amounts of plastics and doesn’t clutter gardens and the streetscape with more bins.
• It will still keep the accountants happy!
