Plans To Charge To Take Garden Waste Dropped

13 September 2011, 12:03

Controversial plans by a Dorset council to start charging to collect garden waste have been scrapped.

Poole Borough Council had wanted to charge £31 a year for the service to help raise extra cash, but the idea was rejected at a meeting.

Instead the council will look into other changes to recycling services.

Shaun Robson, Head of Environmental and Consumer Protection Services said:

“We cannot afford to extend this scheme across the borough without introducing a charge. The Overview and Scrutiny Committee decided to recommend to Full Council that the introduction of a charge be refused. Members recommended the introduction of a policy to exclude green waste from black bins across the borough and both recommendations will be debated by Members on 27 September.”
