Maldon district: Villagers dealt a blow over green waste collections
11:00am Sunday 5th August 2012 in News
Villagers who petitioned to keep their green waste service have been dealt a blow.
Residents in Wickham Bishops, Little Totham, Bradwell, Tollesbury, Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Heybridge Basin, Tillingham, Hazeleigh and St Lawrence all sent in petitions to Maldon District Council late last year to retain their Saturday green waste collection service.
A district council spokesman said: “The cost of the service was felt to be disproportionate and it was not supported.
“Talks have been held with some parishes in the north of the district who are trying to replicate the council’s former scheme and MDC is supporting this.”
