Letter on recycling sent to the local paper


Dear Sir,

It’s happened again! Hundreds of thousands of council tax payers in Croydon are not getting value for their money. This is because the council is persisting with a policy of expanding kerbside recycling predominately in marginal wards (Kerb your (eco) enthusiasm – Green Guardian). Safe Tory and Labour wards like Croham, Purley, Heathfield, Bensham Manor, Thornton Heath and Selhurst are still waiting for their plastics cardboard and garden waste collections to commence. A full 19 months after marginal wards.
If you live in Waddon, Norbury, South Norwood, Upper Norwood, Addiscombe and Coulsdon East you can count yourself lucky because the Tory council want to impress you with new services in order to clinch crucial votes to secure victory for their councillors. This is not a new phenomenon; Labour played the same game when they were in power.
This Conservative council is continuously bemoaning about a fair deal for Croydon with regard to government money but conveniently chooses to ignore a fair deal for its tax paying residents?

Yours sincerely
