More about binbags

Sir – If Welwyn Hatfield Council are going to fine people for putting their rubbish out early, does this mean that every resident will get �100 when the council fails to collect the rubbish on our collection day?  What about the litter made by staff

What about the litter made by staff collecting the bin bags? Our road is usually cleared of rubbish BEFORE the bin bags have been collected! Our road is left looking a mess after the refuse collection.

Also, what about the mess that is made by the contractors who cut the grass? Can we fine them also?

SIR - When there is a Bank Holiday "early rubbish" should not be fined, as often householders forget and put rubbish out one day early by mistake - eg, the refuse collection for the Friday will be on the Saturday of the Bank Holiday week.

Two bank holidays in May coming up!!
