In my work for the Taxpayers' Alliance, I am regularly quoted criticising councils and councillors. Some would say I never have a good word to say about any of them, although I hope the councillors I do work with think differently.
Today though I am writing this post to commend Hull City Council. Yesterday all our recycling bins were emptied and taken away. Today we received a new blue bin and a new brown bin. The amount of products you can place in your recycling bins has increased and we also have a small, unobtrusive caddy sitting in the kitchen in which we can place food waste in a biodegradable bag. Hull City Council handled the changeover in a very professional manner and have made recycling very easy. Well done to them.
