I AM writing to say that I too have been turned away abruptly from Malvern tip, with a load of household rubbish.

I agree with Mr Connah that this pointless waste of resources has been foisted upon us, and also ask for what reason?

We certainly won’t be the only people to have wasted our time and fuel on a futile journey. But consider the countless hours spent by council employees implementing the change and the further costs in paper and postage. I am dismayed council tax is being used to finance these ‘crazy decisions’.

Surely it would have been more apposite to use up the old before applying the new, thereby diminishing everyone’s carbon footprint?
