Abolish a chargeable garden waste service to local homes in Tamworth

Lets work together to fight this charge because collecting, recycling and disposing of your rubbish is included as a service offered from the council to all residents paying their council tax.  This charge will lead to a large amount of people putting their garden rubbish in their general refuse bin, and thus it will go to landfill instead of recycling.  It will encourage fly tipping which will in turn, lead to enormous costs that will be incurred by the council, which consequently will lead to higher council tax bills, longer term. It represents a disproportionate large council tax increase for lower-banded houses. It's a huge burden on the aged and underprivileged residents of the Tamworth Borough Council area who can neither afford to pay this charge or are able to dispose of their waste themselves. This policy is a disingenuous ruse to conceal a Council Tax rise.  The Government has given the green light to increase council tax bills, therefore a small increase for all means all residents are participating and contributing to this service as opposed to many who have not subscribed to the garden waste service to date.
