Vote to keep weekly rubbish collections

As Cornwall Council sends out its council tax bills for the coming year, residents will get the chance to have their say on the future waste collection arrangements for our area.
The ballot paper is on the inside back page of the Guide to Council services which is enclosed in every bill envelope and looks like this:
There are two choices. Option A means keeping weekly black bag collections and fortnightly recycling and garden waste collections plus the addition of a new weekly food waste collection. Option B means losing weekly black bag collections and instead having weekly recycling pick ups.
I have no hesitation in recommending Option A.

Every resident is entitled to vote in this ballot. Although there is only one ballot paper in each council tax demand, additional copies can be got from One Stop Shops, libraries or council offices or you can vote online.
