AFTER filling my trailer with leaves and an old car battery, I travelled to to Malvern ‘tip’ only to be turned away – and I was told I wasn’t the first.

The green trailer permits are apparently no longer valid.

I hadn’t been told during a trip in November, and hadn’t been informed by post. I was told I should have checked on the website for a policy I didn’t know had changed.

I was also told that if they accepted the old permits, they would be fined by the council – can the council fine itself?

Which council employee or committee decided to invalidate the old permits?

And what was the point?

All it has done is waste my time and car fuel. To think we pay our council tax to implement these crazy decisions.
