Wheelie bin woes

I AM very concerned about having yet another wheelie bin for general rubbish.

I AM very concerned about having yet another wheelie bin for general rubbish.

It is very difficult when I need my garden bin emptying as I have to get it down a communal driveway (this serves about 10 properties) which is very uneven because of its use in all weather. It is only occasionally that I have to do this as fortunately I have a small garden. However, the thought of having to do it regularly fills me with dread.

But more importantly, is the council providing a cleaning service for these bins as there is no way I could wash this huge bin out myself. I am a widow living alone, but I do pay council tax (with only a small reduction for single occupancy).

I really don’t think this problem has been thought through. Many people will face this problem - young, old and infirm - and I think action should be taken to provide suitable answers.

Mrs P Goodwin, Kingshurst.
