I WAS pleased to read that a green waste collection is being trialled in Boston, but disappointed that, in view of the fact that 30 per cent of landfill waste is green waste, a trial was deemed necessary.
Clearly a green waste collection is needed. I am not in the trial area so will continue to put my green waste in my landfill bin. If I have had a good ‘clearout’ in the garden I will go to the household waste tip.
However, it is not practical to go to the waste tip (or anywhere else involving putting the waste in a car) with a small amount of green waste from a bit of weeding and grass cutting.
As the article states that the waste diverted from landfill to composting will make the scheme cost neutral, I look forward to a full green waste collection service being implemented soon.
