Reader Letter: Free bins are a waste of money
- Credit: PA
One reader is baffled as to why she can get a free food waste bin, but cannot have her blue bin replaced for free. What do you think?
I can have a new food bin free of charge, to save the council money.
I am sure my few banana skins and egg shells, which were the only things on the list that I waste, would save a lot.
Like all pensioners and people with a low income, we don't buy food that we don't use or need just to put it in the bin.
However, a blue recycling bin costs £40 to replace - I still don't have one because mine was stolen. This was full every time it went out for collection.
