Pickles may introduce law on bin collections

Eric Pickles has said that he may introduce new laws forcing councils to reinstate weekly bin collections after admitting the Government's previous efforts have done no more than slow the decline. The Communities Secretary said it had taken Labour ten years to “destroy” the traditional weekly service and suggested it would take as long to restore it. Mr Pickles said that the Conservatives were looking at setting down “minimum standards”, making it more difficult for local authorities to offer fortnightly collections.
