Garden Waste Charge Petition – tell Labour “No”

The Labour cabinet has passed proposals to increase garden waste charges to £45 this year. The proposal now goes to a final vote on 28th February. So now is the time to tell the Labour cabinet “No”. Sign our petition below.

We the undersigned oppose the plans of West Lancashire’s Labour Cabinet to hike the charge for garden waste collection by 50% to £45. This is an unjustified rise greatly exceeding any increase in the cost of providing the service and hits those without cars disproportionately. When garden waste charges were first introduced, recycling rates fell as some garden waste ended up in the grey bins for general waste. The same thing will happen again. We ask the Labour-run Council to think again.

The public petition list here will only display your first name and first letter of your surname. No other details are published. If you prefer to be completely anonymous here, then please select the box in the petition below. Your full name and address will be included on the printed petition we will present to the Labour cabinet before the decision making meeting on 28th February.

Stop 50% increase in garden waste charges to £45 in West Lancashire!

Dear Cllrs Gagen and Dowling,

We the undersigned oppose the plans of West Lancashire's Labour Cabinet to hike the charge for garden waste collection by 50% to £45. This is an unjustified rise greatly exceeding any increase in the cost of providing the service and hits those without cars disproportionately. When garden waste charges were introduced recycling rates fell as some garden waste ended up in the grey bins for general waste. The same thing will happen again. We ask the Council cabinet to think again.
