One-in-three ready to pay £40 green bin charge
ONLY a third of households have expressed an interest in paying to have their garden waste taken away.
But Rotherham Borough Council says this will be enough to sustain the new system when the changes arrive later in 2018.
A £40-a-year charge is planned for garden waste, which would become a year-round service rather than seasonal.
Cllr Emma Hoddinott, cabinet member for waste, said: “The way officers have modelled the scheme is that it pays for itself appropriate to the level of take-up.
“Clearly, if only a tiny number of people decided to do so we would have to consider whether this was viable.
