We've spent a lot, and recycling rates are still low

AT a recent meeting of Malvern Hills District Council, the late Cllr Chris Cheeseman announced he was delighted that as a result of the introduction of wheelie bins, recycling rates had "leapt" from 32 to 36 per cent.

Leader David Hughes concurred in his pleasure.

Some people are easily pleased. £1.6m of our money has been spent to increase recycling rates by 4 per cent, to a level that is still well below the national average, and far short of the targets set by Defra.

It doesnt make any difference to me when the collections are missed with regularity and I have to either phone the council or visit their offices which entails a long wait and 99 questions.

Since December my recycling as been missed on numerous occasions. The bin is in plain sight next to my footpath.
