Sunderland council to keep weekly green bin collections

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Weekly green bin collections are there to ensure our household rubbish is removed before it becomes a problem.

Collections going to fortnightly will mean overflowing bins, poor hygiene, risk of vermin, increased dumping. It will encourage people to put household waste in recycling bins if their green bin is full.

We need to keep weekly bin collections and would actually benefit from weekly blue (recycle) bin collections if the council is serious about more people recycling. I know our blue bin is full well before collection day.
