Oh what a waste!

H&F Tories have once again shown that their so-called 'green' credentials are in fact deepest blue.

At last night's H&F Council meeting, the Tories voted to end garden waste recycling collection in the borough. This was first introduced by Labour in 2003 as a free service. The Tories introduced charges for collection in 2007 and the service has gone downhill ever since as a result.

The move to scrap green waste collection has taken place despite the results of a public consultation supporting the service and ironically it was introduced as an amendment to a Tory motion at the Council meeting opposing bin taxes.
