Barbara N in Barking
Having a concern for safety and because of the amount of knife crimes when I found a number of old kitchen knives in the loft I rang the council for advice on how to dispose of them.
Was told this was the first call they had had on this subject and after consulting someone was told that they could be taken to the council tip but had to be securely wrapped. When told that I am unable to get to the tip I was told that they only accept 3 knives at a time, I have 20, and I would be charged £32.
I could not believe this as I said I could have just wrapped them and put them in my black bin but would not do this for safety reasons,
Has anyone else heard of this?
