Brown bin rental

Local Conversations in Somersham

Can anybody tell me why we have to rent our brown bins? Ipswich borough dont charge and never have. My council tax should cover this surely?
9 earlier replies
Hi Linda Ours was collected quite early yesterday, I wonder if they have just missed yours. Our local councillor is keeping track of bin collections and dealing with late collections for us, might it be worth just letting him know?
Linda P
Cheers Kim. Will do. I think it must have been the whole of our road. I noticed my neighbours bin hadn't been done either.

Cones on Public Council Land

Local Conversations in Ipswich Town Centre

Morning all, Thought I might start a debate! I have noticed a huge increase of people putting cones out on council verges (outside their homes) and wondered what the majority of Streetlife readers thought - is it right or wrong?
