21st Century

IN response to Mike Charles's letter in last weeks Gazette, I have to admit I had an “Inward Chuckle” on the above subject.

Cllr Charles states that he is fed up with outside councils and Councillors interfering in this debate.

The facts are that wheeled bins are coming and there is very little Mike Charles can do about it, grants for this service have been provided for a revised and more efficient service.

Cllr Charles says he has lived in Malvern for 76 years and it appears “abhors” change, well Mike, my wife and I came to live in a 21st Century Upton, the days of the man with a leather waistcoat collecting the metal ash bin and loading it onto a horse and cart have been consigned to history.

I do wish Tim would read the bid for the wheelie bins.
He quite clearly has no idea whst is going on !!
The £1.6 million is to create a service that will cost £300 000 moor a year to fund and will just add glass to out service. !
It is not more economic nor more efficient and will lead in 3 years to a funding shortfall. I believe then the service will be privatised.
W could have had a glass box each for a lot less money !
So why are we having wheelies ??
Do service matches with Herefordshire and so privatisation will be simple .

Oh we must not forget Ivor Pumfreys quote that the service is at full capacity.
Last year he stated that £60 000 /year could be saved from the service by route optimisation.... so the service is not at full capacity if you can loose an entire bin round and still collect all the rubbish.
Something smells fishy around here and it is not the bottom of the wheelie bins!
