Derby City Council: Proposals to charge for Brown Bin Collections

      Derby, United Kingdom

In Derby, the Labour-run Council are proposing to charge £40 to collect residents' Brown Bin (and £20 per extra Brown Bin) that has been part of the regular waste service offered in return for the Council Tax that we pay.   Derby has been the number one recycling City in the UK due to the support of its residents, who have embraced the fortnightly kerb-side collection system that has been in place for many years.   The residents of Derby strongly object to the Labour Council's proposals to charge households for Brown Bin collections and call on them to scrap the plans.

To:
Derby City Council
Stop the brown bin tax

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The Brown Bin tax disincentivises the efforts of residents to protect the planet. It is a very poor example being set by those in charge of our city, who do have other options to manage funding.

      A responsible council would not impose a tax on protecting the environment. Get rid of theses incompetent politicians.

      Because I can no longer work due to ill health, and I do not like mixing up waste, but now have no choice as I cannot afford the charge.
