In preparation for Budget Day, Bury Conservatives have been taking a look at examples of council waste over the past few years. All that talk of waste got us thinking about it literally: the bulky household waste collection service.
For the princely sum of £36, Bury Council will come round and take 5 big household items off your hands. But is all really as it seems? Take our quiz to find out...
We set out to create this quiz to try and raise awareness of how difficult it is to get your household waste collected safely in Bury. Fly tipping is a serious issue in our borough, and convoluted algorithms that make you get a calculator out to get rid of some ladders don't help anyone.
If elected in May, a Conservative administration would simplify waste tariffs and make it easier to dispose of your bulky household items simply and cost-effectively. We pledge to:
- Reduce the cost of collection to £30 for 5 items
- Simplify the bulky collection algorithm to ensure that one item actually means one item
- Reduce fly-tipping in our borough and support our residents, supporting a cleaner community
