Bin the new bin collections

Bin the new bin collections

Please reverse your decision to change weekly bin collections to bi-weekly collection and cancel future charges in garden waste

Why is this important?

This is important because this service is one of the few services left to Enfield residents. The so-called “consultation” conducted by the council revealed a majority of residents preferred to keep the bin collections as a weekly service rather than change it to bi-weekly with additional charges for garden waste.

Reasons for signing

  • Our hallway is already full of boxes that had not been collected since the Council stopped weekly bin collection. It is becoming rather dangerous but I don't see the point why we pay extra money for private waste collection where we pay Council tax. We share bins with other 2 households and our bins get full within a week after collection. Weekly bin collection is an absolute must to maintain basic standard of living.
  • Disgraceful by the council ignoring the consulting and going for the option people were most against.
  • My behaviour will not change as a result of the council's decision. I already separate my green and food waste and recycle everything possible. My rubbish now takes less than 30% of the space in my (small) bin. I'd like to think that the new system will encourage more recycling, but I very much doubt that it will. At least the foxes will be able to kill the rats that will infest the overflowing bins and flytipped rubbish.
