20/2/08 – Plastic Bottle bag Delivery Company sacked!
The contract with Link Communications to distribute the clear plastic bottle bags for use in the weekly kerbside recycling was terminated last week.
Link have been asked to return any sacks which remain in their possession.
Cllr Dale Heenan, “No payment has been made to Link Communications and no payment will be forthcoming. The advice of the Director of Law & Democratic Services is being sought on the appropriate response and whether we have any opportunity to sue them.
Residents in Covingham and Nythe are still complaining to me that they have not received their free recycling bags. The service by Link has been abysmal and I am pleased that no Council Tax payers money will be wasted on this company.
I have raised the continued problems with the Cabinet, Leader of Council and the appropiate Director. These issues must be resolved swiftly.”
