AS wheelie bins made the news recently (Fen Blow by David Self ) I thought I would have a go as they are really on my mind a lot these days.

This is one of the hottest and most humid summers I can remember and I am in my eighties, yet Fenland Council decided to empty all its bins once a fortnight instead of once a week. For papers, tins and bottles there is no complaint but kitchen waste and such like it is definitely unhealthy and the decision should be reversed.

No doubt the Tory council managed to save a few bob, sacked a couple of workers I suppose. If there is a health inspector around these parts I would ask him or her to look into this matter.

I would also suggest to members of the health committee the very least they can do is to have a discussion about this.
