Load of rubbish

FROM Tuesday, July 1, dumping household waste in council-run tips will cost up to £70.

Residents will need a permit to carry rubbish in small vans or trailers.

The new permits will cost £35 for vehicles up to the size of an escort van and trailers up to 1.8m long and rise to £70 for Ford Transit sized vans.

These costs will increase fly tipping throughout the borough and blight beauty spots.

Not to mention the cost to the council and environment.

Tipping is morally wrong but the council get enough money from off us as it is.

We rarely agree Mr Nutt but you have hit the nail on the head. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Newport City Council has the answer to all land fill and recycling issues. This is soon to be rolled out across the country as a franchise scheme which Newport Council will manage from their Ivory Tower at Casa Civic.
The resolution to the age old problem is simple.
If the public can't get in to the recycling centre at the SDR, they can't empty their cars of the pesky rubbish.
Simples.
Not just content with reducing the size of excepted trailers to 1.2m square, banning all vans from site and reducing the opening hours to finish at 4.30pm on weekdays, 4 hours on a Sunday and closed completely on all bar one bank holidays they've gone one better.
Now you have to show proof of residency at the top of the ramp to get in. Now they don't advertise this anywhere like maybe on their web site or in the press. Their own call centre has no information on this.
So people roll up and then have to look for identification for access. So the queue goes straight back onto one of the busiest, fastest roads in Newport causing blockages and general mayhem.
I think the reason they can't afford to repair the Water park at Tredegar Park is because they are saving up for a cloaking device. Then if they sit there REALLY QUIETLY people might forget it's there and go home.
Simples? WE MUST BE!!!!

The next step will surely be to change the opening times to 12 until 2pm, with a two hour lunch break.

I know Newport are keen to get everybody recycling but isn't it high time these councillors were thrown on the scrap heap?

The sick thing is that they haven't got the money to repair the Tredegar Park Water Feature but they can spend circa £70,000 on a pedestrian crossing that nobody is going to use across the SDR outside the tip.
When will this Council realise that allowing access to the main recycling centre in the City is the only way to go. Restricting the site to overflowing short hours frustrates people who will get rid of their rubbish any way or where they can.

It's already happening. Look at Herbert Street in Riverside, Llanwern and Bishton lanes and most gateways on the lighthouse road. I have tried to speak to a Streetscene representative and have been promised 2 call backs weeks ago. Guess what? Still waiting. All I can get is that it is Council Policy that is responsible for the change to the access hours.
They aren't interested. They don't want or have to listen.
They might listen next year.......

Anyone try to fill in T.C.B.C. Survey on our rubbish collection, it's on "My Say" T.C.B.C. Website.
You have to fill in four lots of answers, in section one they give you choices for your rubbish collection, none of them suitable for me, but no alternative for me to make a suggestion, I answered all remaining sections and at the end made a comment in the comments box, when I pressed submit it would not allow because I did not answer question one, you have to tick one of T.C.B.C. suggestions, this Mr Cunningham is not concelltation, this is TCBC telling us what you are going to have like it or lump it. Roll on the elections.

I'm dismantling my greenhouse this weekend. I will be borrowing a family members pick up truck to transport the waste to my local centre in Penmaen/Pontllanfrai
th. If they tell me I have to pay £35 I will give them three options.

1) Dump it outside the gates to centre.
2) Park outside the gates and carry the material in by foot.
3) Let me tip free of charge.

If they object to any of these options, the greenhouse will end up on the side of a mountain somewhere.

As an alternative solution, advertise the greenhouse on Freecycle. ( https://groups.freec
ycle.org/group/Freec
ycle-Newport-SW/post
s/all) Not only will you get rid of it free of charge, but the new owner will gratefully dismantle it and take it away too.

Indeed, if I hadn't recently acquired a greenhouse I would have been more than happy to take it off your hands. You don't have a shed you no longer want too do you?

I didn't vote for them so it's NOT difficult to complain at all thank you very much Sillybilly43.
Poolerkev, everybody is fully aware of the location of the main letters posting. It's rather evident from who the poster is.
As to my post, I was making a comparison between the different services offered between different boroughs. Giving you lucky people north of Cwmbran the opportunity of seeing what we in Newport experience most days. The incompetence of local government.
Fast forward a few years from now and you too will know and love the wonder of Newport Council. Because when the super councils make an appearance, Newport Council is short listed to be the one running the south east corner of Wales. Monmouthshire, Blanaeu Gwent, Torfaen, Caerphilly and beyond will kneel and serve the unstoppable beast that is Newport Councils Streetscene Service who are all seeing, all knowing and about as efficient as an ashtray on the back of a motorbike.

The have a further step in that. They will restrict the Opening to 2 hours a day . The 2 hour slot will change daily and they will not tell you which 2 hours to further complicate it they will only accept certain material on certain days

Now you've done it Bobevans. You've just leaked Street scenes Council Policy ahead of the big launch. There were fireworks booked and bunting on order. Cucumber sandwiches and all. Now what are they going to think up in place of the big news? They'll have to get a think tank involved.
