4/2/08 – Plastic Bottle Bag Distribution
Cllr Phil Young, Cllr Glenn and Cllr Dale Heenan are still receiving complaints from residents over the distribution of the plastic bottle bags by the delivery contractor. The bags are meant to be for residents to put their used Plastic bottles into the weekly kerbside recycling service, and are provided free by Swindon Borough Council.
Cllr Dale Heenan: The bags were originally meant to be delivered before Christmas, this didn’t happen and we were told it would happen by the end of last week and now we are being promised by Monday. This is clearly unacceptable. While the company might have come with references from other authorities saying they did a good job, enough is enough.
As Councillors we must stand up for residents if something is wrong. I have no faith that this new target will be reached by the delivery company, and they must be penalised. I have no problem in demanding that the contractor is not paid for this appalling service.
If residents have still not received their free bundle of bags, please contact Phil, Glenn or I as soon as possible so we can ensure you receive your free bags.
