New Bins: Your Opinions

Manchester City Council has voted to waste £2 million to replace all current grey bins with ones that are 40% smaller. The Council then ruled out saving the £2 million by swapping with the existing brown bins suggested by John Leech.

Cllr. John Leech said, "Labour claim that the bins needed to be changed because they were coming to the end of their useful life, but the vast majority of them are in perfectly good condition. This is yet another example of the Council wasting millions of pounds which would be better spend protecting front line services.”

Only Cllr. John Leech voted against the plans, and not one of the 95 Labour councillor spoke, except to complain that John Leech was asking too many questions, again.
