I AM in favour of the residents' protest over the wheelie bins on three facts.
This is a new housing estate that Uttlesford Council gave planning permission for, therefore if it is having difficulty collecting the rubbish it has only itself to blame.
Secondly, what happens to the disabled and mothers who are using the footpath with wheelchairs and buggies on bin day as they would be unable to move the bins easily to get b,y forcing them out into the road.
Thirdly we pay our rates which includes collection of waste from outside our homes, not five metres down the street. It seems today that we are charged the same price if not more for half the service.

Whilst I understand Uttlesford's problems and this is because the scheme was not properly thought through before it was brought into practice, I live in a small cul-de-sac in Barnston, and often come home to find the bins in the centre of the drive and flung across the flower beds.
Come on you were voted in by your people, listen to us and act on it!
