The decision to charge for the collection of green waste by Dudley Council is the type of thing that makes me lose faith in politicians.

They say one thing and do another.

I only have green waste collected three times a year and they want me to pay £30, it is just not on.

They dangle a carrot in front of us and then take it away.

What next? Will they start charging for black bin collections?

At this rate they will be charging us for walking up our garden paths.

All this will lead to more fly tipping which will cost the council a lot more in the long run.
