We all understand in these austere times that our Councils have to save money.
At this time of year local authorities start positing how they can make the books balance from next April, and North West Leicestershire District Council is no different.
Next Tuesday the Conservative Cabinet will meet to consider proposed cost savings for the 2014/15 financial year and as you might expect most of them either mean cutting services or you paying more for them.
Perhaps most controversial is a proposal to start charging you to empty your brown 'Green Waste' bin.
Papers released by NWLDC reveal plans to charge £30 a year to collect your bin, which will be reduced to £25 if you pay by Direct Debit.
Although the scheme won't come fully online until the summer of 2015 it is forecast that savings of £22,000 will be made next year with annual savings of £150,000 when the scheme is fully operational.
In the same papers it's revealed that NWLDC will start refusing to collect bins which have been put out late, saving a further £10,000 a year.
What do you think?
Is £30 a year a reasonable charge?
Will charging to collect your 'brown bin' stop you from recycling? Will you do more home composting? or will you just press your 'black bin' down more?
Your comments would be appreciated?
