Recyling sacks U-turn

14 February 2011

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.
