it comes to crystal balls I am not the most adventurous but it didn’t take a
genius to work out that Bexley council would renew its attack on motorists as soon as it
could and that subsidising the removal of kitchen and garden waste just because it
distorts their recycling rates in their favour was unlikely to go on for ever.
Back in July I cautiously stuck my neck out and sadly I was right.
Motorists are due for a further whacking - details another time - and the brown bin is suddenly out of favour. They are going to charge for it with a saving of more than half a million pounds a year. It’s back to the old bonfire folks.
