Two thirds (so far) backing weekly rubbish collections

So far, around two thirds of Cornish residents who have responded are backing keeping weekly black bag rubbish collections. But there is still time to have your say on the issue.

The full story about the vote is here. In short, the Council is holding a ballot of all residents to help decide whether to keep weekly collections or to move to fortnightly collections. According to the Council the current scores are 66% in favour of Option A (weekly collections) and 34% in favour of Option B (fortnightly).

The poll closes on 14th May and every Cornish resident can vote by going here.

In this week's Cornish Guardian, Cllr Julian German the Cabinet Member in charge of waste, sets out why he favours option B. To make sure that he doesn't get his way, please use your vote.
