Scrap the Bin Tax

The Liberal Democrats do not accept the Green Bin Tax. As the only opposition party on West Berkshire District Council we have led the fight against it and one of our priorities, if we gain control of the council in 2019, is to scrap the charge. Not only have the Conservative-run council hit us with a near 6% rise in Council Tax this year, but now we are being charged a further £50 on top to have our green bins emptied.

We believe that recycling shouldn't be a hassle or cost. It should be encouraged by our councillors in order to protect our green spaces.

We, the undersigned, call on West Berkshire Council to scrap the Green Bin Tax:
