Local residents are reminded that they have a week left to inform the Council on their views regarding green bin collection.
East Lindsey District Council is asking local people for their views on a charged for service as part of a month long consultation. The consultation is taking place as the District Council considers all options to find a further £2m in savings in time for the 2014/15 financial year due to government cuts and increasing fuel and utilities costs. The saving is needed for the Council to fulfil its legal obligation to set a balanced budget.
Waste collection is the most expensive service the Council provides at £55 per household per year. Green Waste collections alone costs £800,000, a service the Council is not obliged to provide for free – unlike the black and grey bin collections.
Residents have until April 30th 2013 to respond and can do so on the Council’s website or by picking up a form from your nearest East Lindsey office (Franklin Hall) or leisure facility.
