Scrap Trafford Green Bin Tax!
By Rachel Whalley
Stop Trafford Council from charging extra to collect garden waste!
Trafford Council have stated that from the 5th of June 2017 residents will be charged extra if they want their garden waste collecting. This is a highly objectionable move by the council, which is completely unjustified, undemocratic and particularly unfair on the frail and disabled, as they would struggle to transport rubbish to their local tip. Residents are already funding waste collection via council tax, so where does it stop – extra charges for rubbish collection, education, environment, sewage, policing, fire service, housing, transport and health? Sign and stop it now!
