Bigger bins refusal sparks complaints to Walsall Council

Walsall | News | Published:

Walsall Council has received dozens of complaints and appeals after more than 2,500 people were refused a larger bin ahead of controversial waste collection changes.

In October, the authority will switch to alternate weekly collections in a move to save around £1million a year.

Since May, 20,916 people have applied for a bin bigger than the standard 140 litre one to be used for rubbish, but out of those 2,508 have been declined.

It has prompted a flurry of responses with 107 people challenging the decision and 29 lodging official complaints over the process.

A council report states: "All 107 responses are being reviewed."
