Alternate Week Bin Collection

Here in Aldershot and Farnborough we are currently conducting a 6 month alternate week bin collection trial amongst 7,000 of the 35,000 homes in Rushmoor. All 7,000 homes will take part in a survey at the end of June before the trial is concluded in July. I welcome this survey, and will value the information it gives us, however, this leaves 38,000 homes not consulted. As the trial area survey will be used as the basis for the final decision by Rushmoor Councils Cabinet, can I suggest the 38,000 homes not in the trial area ensure their voice is heard along with the trial area by writing to Mr David Quirk, Head of Environmental Health, Rushmoor Borough Council, Farnborough GU14 7JU.

I would welcome all residents to take part in my on-line poll on the bin collection at the top right of this page where residents can also leave comments. It is no good complaining about decisions the Council makes if you do not make your voice heard. This scheme has been a very controversial issue the length and breadth of the Country. It is time now, to make your views known. Your views count, and I hope residents will give a very clear steer to those that will decide the future of waste collection here in Rushmoor.
What do you think?
