THE idea of fortnightly collections of the black bins just can’t be allowed. It is a disgrace that such an idea is even being suggested.

It has already been trialled, and failed in Rochdale, where the leader of the council reversed the decision after a couple of weeks.

What exactly are we paying council tax for? Overflowing bins and an increase in rats is not my cup of tea especially with two young children.

I have already been let down by Labour councillors on certain issues, don’t let us down with this.
