Not so according to South Gloucestershire Council (SGC).
In their view, despite the fact that their hapless residents already pay council tax the council want taxpayers to recycle garden waste but will charge them £56 per annum for picking it up (bringing in a tidy £1.2M per annum).
Local residents will be charged £36 to pick up their green bins, and a further £20 for a bundle of ten recycling sacks.
SGC is quoted by the Taxpayers's Alliance:
"If the council ultimately chose not to charge for the green bin service, then we’d have to implement cuts that could affect valued services such as libraries."In other words the council will not cut the costs of its own bureaucracy, but are happy to threaten the services that taxpayers pay for!
