Message from Colin Swindell – District Councillor
Derbyshire Dales residents are being asked for their views on proposals to introduce charges for replacement waste and recycling bins.
The Council claims that replacing damaged or lost bins costs the tax payers around £28,000 a year and the annual supply of black sacks and garden waste sacks costs £30,000.
With the Council under pressure to make financial savings, a survey has been launched to ask local people what they think about being charged for their annual supply of black sacks, biodegradable garden waste sacks and replacement bins and waste containers.
No decisions have been made at this stage. Councillors will consider the responses to the survey in the Autumn and make a decision based upon the feedback.
The consultation ends on 30 September 2016 and I encourage all residents to take part.
You can take part in the survey on the Council’s website by clicking the following links…
For more details about the proposals visit http://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/your-council/news-and-publications/latest-news/2318-views-sought-on-waste-and-recycling-changes
To go directly to the online survey visit https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2FGMCDR
If you know of anybody who would like a paper copy, please get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The survey is very simple and easy to complete. It should take you no more than 5 minutes.
I would also be interested to know what you think as I will eventually be voting on whether or not to introduce any new charges. Please email me your views at email@example.com
It is important that you make your views known through the online survey, as well as sharing your views with me. What you say in the consultation will reach all councillors and form part of the overall report to the committee.
Come and support our Annual Gift day at All Saints Church, Elton on Saturday 17 September from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
This year there will be an exhibition of items of historical interest, an art exhibition and once again you can have a go at ringing the bells.
There will be lots to see and do as we are going to have a demonstration of flower arranging and you can take part in making a display.
There will also be refreshments and a BBQ to enjoy.
Everyone is welcome!
