THE wife of a Boston councillor has started an online petition to get Boston Borough Council to introduce a green-waste bin collection.

Pam Kenny said while running as a candidate in the Staniland ward earlier this year she found residents were concerned by fly-tipped green waste.

She has now started the e-petition to try to resolve the issue.

Mrs Kenny said: “It gives everybody the opportunity to get rid of their green waste from their homes including older and disabled people who struggle to take it to collection points.

“More importantly the flytippers will not need to dump it in Staniland Road or any other road in the borough, making Boston a green waste fly-tipping ‘no go’ zone.

“This will make Boston and roads like Staniland Road much cleaner and more pleasant to live in and walk around.”

Mrs Kenny thanked staff at the council for their efforts to remove the fly-tipping on Staniland Road and for publicising the issue, but said she felt the only real way to resolve it was to introduce a fortnightly brown bin green-waste collection service.
