  • Wheelie Bin Decision

    07th Jul 2015
    In our May edition we outlined the basics of Ealing Council’s proposed new waste collection arrangements and invited feedback from PCA members.  From about 900 e-mails and 150 paper copies we received only nine responses.  None of responders favoured the Council’s proposed wheelie bins, but interestingly there were no objections to alternate weekly collections (food and landfill one week, food and recycling the next and so on).  We have noted a particular issue affecting...
