Liberal Democrats on Redcar & Cleveland Council are concerned about the Labour Council stopping green waste collections without enough warning.
The Council has stopped its alternate weekly collection of green waste from 1 November for the winter as a cost cutting exercise. However, the Council only informed the press of this on 26 October.
Lib Dem Councillor John Hannon (Kirkleatham Ward) said:
"I appreciate the need to save money, but the Council should have given people much more notice. How are people supposed to plan ahead when big changes like this are sprung on them?"
“I have already received several complaints from residents who are angry about this, and they have good reason to be.”
“The Lib Dems will be asking the Labour Cabinet member responsible what went wrong.”
