LETTERS 13.4.19

WHEN I saw the headline “Vincent dumps verge pickups” in last week’s Voice, I thought it was an April Fool’s joke, but no.
One asks what on earth we are supposed to do with those old, sometimes broken sofas, barbecues, tables, carpets etc.
We don’t all have access to trailers or even to vehicles with trailer hitches, nor do we know where to take the stuff anyway.
Ah, I see, we gather a few friends together, carry it out and dump it on someone else’s verge. Good plan, council!

Ed’s note: Vincent mayor Emma Cole contacted the Voice this week to assure residents verge pickups will be one of the options considered in the review of bulk rubbish collections, and that the council would consult the community before making a final decision. She’d received assurances from the city’s waste mandarins that if the status quo was restored, there’d be no financial penalty to the city.
