Drop Plans for £75 Brown Bin Charge

Harrow Council’s Labour administration recently announced, as part of their budget proposals, that residents could face a £75 charge for the collection of their brown waste bins.

The bins, which are currently used for garden and food waste, would change to being for garden waste only – and would be collected once a fortnight for a £75 per year fee. We believe this proposal is an unreasonable 'garden tax' on Harrow residents, who already pay the third highest council tax in London, and who should reasonably expect waste collection to be included in their bills. The proposal is also unfair on low income households, and will likely have a disproportionate impact on elderly and disabled residents.

So if you live or work in Harrow and are against the plans to charge for brown bin collections, please sign this petition.
