    What Ranil fails to mention is that all his constituents in Hart already have two-weekly collections, a system that runs more-or-less flawlessly. Meanwhile, Basingstoke and Deane is 329th out of 351 local authorities for recycling and at least 20% below the national average. What’s he going to do about that?

      Hart also has a problem with rubbish dumped all over the side of roads that Basingstoke doesn’t.

    Well said Alistair!!!
    What I love is receiving letters from candidates saying how they’re going to improve the lives of local people but slam sensible money saving idea such as fortnightly rubbish collections!! Would love to hear how they are going to afford all these wonderful ideas! Less trucks on the road and more lazy people made to recycle….Whats so bad about that Ranil??…. Especially when most of the country manage just fine!!
