Keep the recycling system in Blaenau Gwent as it is now

This petition had 2,513 supporters

The council are currently bringing in a new recycling system. The new trolley boxes are completely inconvenient. They are bulky and take up too much space to store. The new trucks also mean that people now have to carry recycling through their homes to the front of their property, while rubbish collections happen at the rear of the property. There has been no consideration to the residents of Blaenau Gwent and the local area. Many houses are terraced with small rear lanes that the collection trucks simply can't fit on. The trolleys provided are impractical and once filled, you cannot add any excess recycling, as you currently can by simply adding another bag. We as residents are paying for this service and feel very undermined and as though we are living in a dictatorship. There is nothing wrong with the current system. The new changes are supposed to encourage more people to recycle but will ultimately prevent people from recycling who have always supported the recycling provision in the area.
