Canterbury City Council has today completed a stunning U-turn following a public outcry over a lack of recycling sacks.
Executive members – the same people who introduced a controversial cost-cutting service last June – have agreed to bin it and hand out more sacks to houses in the district.
The decision – costing an extra £37,000 a year – was made in light of a wave of criticism over the now-redundant system, which cut the number of rolls per delivery from two to one.
It is also a huge victory for the Kentish Gazette, which campaigned for the change.
It now means any family who has registered for more sacks will receive an extra roll every four months.
