Letter to the Editor – Hastings Borough Council has gone quiet on refuse solutions

August 3, 2009

observer mastheadDear Editor,

I thought your letter from Karen Lushey last week was a breath of fresh air!

It really captured the difficulties that our feathered friends can cause us.

Up on Manor Road (as I am sure many other residents in other roads across the town will confirm) the seagulls continue to make a mess of the rubbish.

I read in your paper that Conservative Cabinet member Cllr Tucker requests that we keep our rubbish inside until collection morning.

Fair enough.

But what about Hastings Borough Council providing some ordinary bins for those houses that don’t have them, and then do some monitoring of their use?

I was against the communal bin scheme because it was destined to fail, and would not help recycling rates.

That doesn’t mean we don’t need a system that works.

What is happening now that the Council’s trailblazer consultation has finished?

Regarding refuse solutions, the tumbleweed seems to be blowing through the Town Hall at the moment.

For the sake of those that work there, let’s hope it’s not followed by soiled nappies, takeaway cartons and plastic bags.

Yours sincerely,
