Croydon Council has recently introduced a new system of bin and recycling collection, which I am sure has affected most of you. Most households have been forced to use new larger recycling bins and nearly everyone’s collection date has changed.
While we fully support the Council’s aim of significantly increasing our recycling rates, there have been serious issues around the way the system has been implemented, and the fact that it was imposed on residents without any sort of prior consultation or trial run.
We are very interested in getting your views on these changes and how they have affected you. We would be very grateful therefore if you could spare a few minutes of your time and complete our survey. Your input will go a long way in helping us shape future policy on this vital service to residents.
We have said from the start that the new changes were not properly thought through, that residents should be given an opportunity to comment on the proposals and that there was insufficient time to implement such major changes. Yet again the refusal of the Labour Council to listen means that you residents have, unnecessarily, been forced to suffer.
