Where’s my Christmas garden tax rebate?
Just when I think I’ve heard it all, this Labour-run Council comes up with yet another ridiculous idea.
Labour wax lyrical about the ‘success’ of their Brown bin charge. In reality, it has been nothing short of an absolute mess. There have been far less sign-ups than expected, plenty of missed collections and wasted time and resources.
This week, many Harrow residents received the usual leaflet containing next year’s bin collection dates. This leaflet has the surprise addition of a New Year’s sale. The leaflet states that for January only, there is 10% off both the summer and annual services from April 2017. The service is clearly not going well for Labour!
How short-sighted and unfair. What about those 13,000 households that already signed up for the annual service? And the 14,000 that already signed up to this summer’s service? Will they be receiving a garden tax rebate?
It’s Christmas time and this money could go a long way towards gifts for loved ones.
For a £4 summer garden tax rebate, you could treat someone to a box of Quality Street.
And for those who are owed £7.50 annual garden tax rebate, you could not only treat yourself to some mince pies but also treat the kids to a Lego City Garbage Truck Mini Set.
Then the whole family can be happy and perhaps even your bins will be collected!
Will this Labour administration act fairly and wish a Merry Christmas to the current subscribers of the garden tax and give those residents a rebate?
