Garden waste

Audlem Online has been approached by someone from the village who wishes to remain anonymous. The correspondent writes:

"I am a keen supporter of 'Britain in Bloom' and the 'Best Kept Village Award', which contribute, along with many other aspects, to make Audlem a special place for all to enjoy – both visitors and villagers alike. However, I have been dismayed recently when walking round some of our lanes which are within easy reach of the village centre, and on popular routes walked by many, to find garden refuse dumped on the grass verge along with grass cuttings.

"I feel this is unacceptable and is an invitation to others to add to these unsightly piles. If you are one of the culprits I strongly urge you to refrain from this activity. "Best kept" means the whole of the area of Audlem, not just the centre!"

Let's hope this problem disappears once the long-awaited brown bins arrive in the village. As reported in the Minutes of April's Parish Council meeting, they should be available here by June and for an annual fee of £22, payable to the Borough Council, every household will be eligible to have a brown bin. These bins are specifically for garden waste and the annual fee covers fortnightly emptying.
