Warrington North MP Helen Jones calls on bin charge re-think
12:40pm Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
HELEN Jones MP is calling on the council to re-think their refuse bin replacement policy.
Over the past couple of months, the Warrington North MP has received a number or complaints from constituents who have had their refuse bins either stolen or vandalised.
Residents have been told that they must pay £30 for a new bin when registering the loss.
"It can't be right that people who have been subjected to a crime are then charged for a replacement bin," she said.
"I hope the council will re-think their stance. Thirty pounds is a lot of money for a pensioner or for cash strapped families struggling their way through the recession."
