Emptying bins every three weeks instead of fortnightly? That is one of the options being asked by Central Bedfordshire Council in their latest public consultation.
Their current bin collection contract expires in 2019 and they, along with many councils, are looking at various alternatives. They make a host of suggestions including asking whether people would like a separate paper and card collection, a kerbside glass collection and whether people would be willing to pay £40 a year for garden waste collection.
The consultation runs until 5pm on Friday April 20. To have your say click on this link.
