This petition is now closed. It was presented to the council on 30 September 2016 before the October 19th decision-making meeting.
In 2015, West Lancashire Borough Council proposed a £30 charge for all residents for a fortnightly collection of green garden waste. Currently the service is free at the point of use - paid for through council tax.
Faced with opposition from 72% of residents and with local elections looming, the Labour council withdrew the proposal.
Now the elections are behind them, the Labour council have reintroduced the proposal to charge residents £30 a year for a green bin service.
The charge will lead to ten or more jobs lost at the council; increased burning and fly tipping of waste and even green waste ending up in grey bins and then going into landfill.
Our West Lancashire are completely opposed to this proposal.
Please sign our petition.
N.B. Petition closes this Friday morning, 30th September.
We, the undersigned, call on West Lancashire Borough Council to withdraw the proposal to introduce a charge of £30 a year to households for a fortnightly collection of green garden waste.
