The wind is over 40 mph outside and it's bin day tomorrow, it'll be interesting to see if anyone has put their bin out tonight.
Mine's in the garage and staying there until the morning

You're lucky then Bri,  I took my dog for a walk yesterday and didn't go on my normal walk as the tall trees were swaying like mad and I didn't fancy one landing on my bonce.
Those trees were near to this one that came down a while ago when I went out one morning with my dog

"The cabinet also decided to put extra measures in place to help residents recycle, including free collection of large items"

Wonder what that will comprise?

Hang on, that was only voted upon and instantly dismissed by a large majority only a month or so ago.

The specific committee involved threw it out, and then the council as a whole decided to reinstate it.

The scrutiny comittee went against the four week bin idea it had to go to cabinet ,this new cabinet didn't have the guts to go with that so it had to go back to scrutiny who still said no to four week so yesterday cabinet voted the four week ,one Tory member ( mayor in kinmell bay lied and said he'd had no objections ,But he'd received loads   It's going to cost more to clean the flytipping ,  another thing Andrew wilkinson the manager in charge admitted to me that the trolley blocks were not big enough says it all with this council 😡

Yes...this really does belong in the CCBC Incompetence topic...

I think I have found out the reason why the Cabinet have voted for the 4 week bin collection.

CCBC have been doing a trial in some areas of 4 weekly collections and the findings are the recycling increased by 14% in those areas, whereas the 3 weekly collection only increased by 4%. Also the 4 weekly areas reduced the amount of refuse in the wheelie bins by 31% and the 3 weekly only 20%.


At the Cabinet meeting the description of alternatives considered were:-

Option A) Do Nothing. There will be a revenue budget shortfall of £100,000 therefore a revenue budget overspend.

Option B) Maintain current level of refuse collection with £100,000 support to align revenue budget with democratic decision.

Option C)  Based on a future democratic decision there will be a £240,000 saving on the existing budget.


So it looks as if the Cabinet didn't have much choice if they are looking for cutting costs. I don't agree with the 4 weekly collection especially in the summer months, but I'm sure the rats, flies and seagulls will be in their element.

They did have a choice Meleri.
2 in fact,
1, Look at cutting out some of the inept, useless and overpaid management at CCBC.
2, Stop wasting money and time on ‘Scrutiny Committees’ which they ignore the output from anyway!

Very fair points there Fester but who is going to tell them that, hardly going to take their snouts out of the trough are they.
