A WHITEHAVEN family who hit the national headlines after being prosecuted for overfilling their bin say the support they have received has been overwhelming.
Have your say
Its just another Council (that was elected) that is'nt in touch with the locals which its suppose to serve and does not understand what ends people go too, to do the right thing by recycling, when are they actually going to realise that this does in some instances cost a person money to recycle? the council should be happy that the public are actually giving them more recyclable items rather than just bung it in the bin for landfill.
There is only two in my house and i have to visit the tip and recycle centers weekly, so i dont overfill my wheely bin why are we paying so much C-TAX for fortnightly collections bring back weekly pickup AS THE STREETS AND BACK ROADS ARE A MESS WITH FLY TIPPING
CPip did you have children in nappies because my daughter lived on the same estate and she had a family of four too she had big problems with fortnightly wheelie bin collections and had two infants in nappies.We had to take her rubbish off her so she wouldn't get fined! This is supposed to be a service surely we should not have to do this!!!!!!
