Harrow Council, having decided that charging residents to collect their brown bin waste wasn’t enough, have sent out letters to all those residents who had signed up to the brown-bin collection scheme a letter, offering them a 10% discount if they signed up in January for another year. The worst part? The letters were timed to arrive after the end of January, so residents wouldn’t receive them in time to actually take advantage of the saving.
Coming in the same week that the council’s Chief Executive was ridiculed by @harrowwestca for being ‘asleep at the helm’ residents must be starting to wonder exactly what they’re getting for their money.
It’s also worth reminding readers that the original desperate attempt to get more sign-ups with the 10% discount neglected to mention it was only for those paying by Direct Debit.
