Stop the Brown Bin Tax

Did you know that Conservative-run North Herts District Council are consulting on whether they can get away with charging residents upwards of £40 to remove garden waste for them? This service is currently covered by our council tax.

Introducing an additional charge for this service could mean that people who cannot pay are forced to take it to the dump. Unfortunately, some may decide to fly tip their waste instead, which will cost the Council even more money to clear up, or decide to burn it in harmful and dangerous backyard bonfires. Those unable to get to the tip don't have any option but to pay, and no exemptions for elderly or disabled residents have been discussed.

The implementation of a similar tax in nearby Welwyn/Hatfield has been poorly managed, mistake-ridden, and extremely unpopular. Has NHDC not learned from these mistakes?

Please sign our petition in opposition to these changes, and help us send the Council a clear message on this latest Tory stealth tax.
