Three week bin collection plan criticised

Bury Council has been accused of trying to “steam roller” through proposals to collect household rubbish bins every three weeks. Iain Gartside, leader of the town's Conservatives and chairman of the town hall’s scrutiny committee, said he would call the proposals in for review if they were approved - to give residents until the end of July to have their say. He said: "Taxpayers here have seen a 3.5% rise in their bills this year and they should expect the same level of service. We are in favour of recycling but I'm concerned this will lead to an increase in fly-tipping. This move could set us back years." Manchester Evening News
