Labour To Axe Weekly Bin Collections

Many residents will remember our pre-election warning about the weekly bin collection being scrapped by Labour.

Labour put out leaflets just days before the May elections, promising to keep the bins weekly. Labour knew the full financial situation of the Council when making this and their other promises.

Labour yesterday broke their bins promise by revealing their plans to end the weekly bin collection. This is a cynical and calculated betrayal of local people who believed in Labour and their promises. 

Despite being in power for less than 7 months, Labour's legacy in Southampton is already one of lies and broken promises. 

On behalf of the residents who value their weekly bin collection and do not want a permanent stinking mess on their doorstep we are now calling on Labour to reverse this crazy decision and stick to their pre-election pledge.
