Green Waste Collection comes to Epsom and Ewell
At the end of November the council will be starting green waste collections. Residents can "buy" a brown 240 litre wheelie bin or a bag and have green waste collected fortnightly.
The bin will cost thirty pounds per year and the bag seven pounds fifty pence. Cllr Colin Taylor says "I would rather the service had been free of charge but with the prospect of a council tax charge which would affect everyone I was happy to support a fairer subscription-based service." Cllr Julie Morris added "We are very concerned that the council tip is not separating green waste from domestic waste at the moment. Local residents will feel conned if they pay for a green waste collection and it's subsequently dumped in with the household waste when it gets to the council tip."
