“Conservatives letting down residents over food waste” Cllr Sally Beardsworth
The Liberal Democrat Group Leader at Northampton Borough Council, Cllr Sally Beardsworth, has called for the Conservatives to think again over their decision to delay weekly food waste collections. Under the Liberal Democrat administration food waste was due to be picked up weekly, starting this autumn.
Cllr Beardsworth said "The Conservatives have really messed up the recycling. The Liberal Democrat administration left Northampton a great deal in terms of recycling - more collections and massive savings. The Tories botched the delivery of the scheme and Northampton was plagued by a summer of chaos."
"Now the Conservatives have postponed the introduction of weekly food waste collections. The Conservatives are letting residents down"
