Green charge is not fair

RE: South Tyneside Council’s green bin charge.

Surely this can “NOT” be legal.

I am under the impression that my existing council tax covers picking up my waste, be it general or recyclable.

We are now being asked to pay twice. I would like this verified.

This council still can’t grasp that they save by cutting the number of councillors, plus trim expenses.

I’ll not hold my breath.
