Weekly bin collections will continue in Southampton

WEEKLY bin collections in Southampton have been saved by an £8m windfall, the Daily Echo can reveal.
The service was set to be axed amid widespread spending cuts. But today the Government confirmed the city's bid for cash had been accepted.
Southampton was awarded £8.28m from the Government's Weekly Collection Support Scheme.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said: "Every Englishman has a basic right to have their household rubbish taken away each and every week - it is the most visible council service people get."
Reacting to today’s announcement, Cllr Asa Thorpe, cabinet member for environment and transport, said: “This is the news we have been waiting for and it’s great news for the people of Southampton. Weekly rubbish collections are safe at least until 2017. We knew we had a great bid, and that’s why I took the risk of increasing the amount requested to take into account extra service improvements to glass recycling and home composting.
"It’s a tribute to our officers who put the proposal together that we have been awarded the full £8,280,000 when the scheme was oversubscribed nationally. I’m happy to say this had cross-party support within the council and I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid.
“Today’s announcement means our budget for next year will be amended to take into account this ringfenced funding and it will mean that we can keep safe more jobs in our refuse team.”
The council will receive £1,973,000 in this financial year, £3,352,000 in 2013/14 and £2,955,000 in 2014/15.

Does it not prove that only few days ago when latest Labour member to cuddle NuLabouraism Cllr. Simon Letts floated his vision of crazy cuts all over the place neither he nor any other councillor from his Group mentioned anything about this pending bid, so in their true blue NuLabourite style they misled the Council and people of Southampton?

Now Cllr. Thorpe has the cheek to start claiming that he is so clever, when the fact is that it is that Tory man Pickle, whom not only us socialists but even many Tories who care about local government do not like, has given this money.

These unprincipled traitors of good old Labour, should stop spinning everything like Liberal Democrats to make themselves look clever. Because in reality they are no better than Tories but in action even more dangerous and dishonest. As has been proved with the record of fibbing ever since they have got into power in Southampton.

Excellent news for the city and the service. A bit rich for Eric "Jabba the Hut" Pickles to claim any credit as the cut in Council grant implimented by his department was the sole reason for the proposed service reduction, but a relief nevertheless.
A bit of positive news for a change.

Dunno what the fuss is all about. Been on fortnightly collections for 3 years now. Apart from a few maggots in the summer it works well. I suppose that's saved a bit of the art collection.

It can not be saved as it was not lost in the first place and in breech of their manifesto if they tried to renege, albeit they do not collect aregularly around our way anyway, only when it does not rain as it is a friday collection and they want to be home early which they get away with with their poor management staff allowing a weak contract of work to finish , finish when the workers say not when the work is done.

This is excellent news for the City and shows what can happen when all the political parties stop bickering and stand up for Southampton.

There is potentially more money to be had from central government starting with the £1 million p.a. that Eric Pickles plans to withold from Southampton if the Council doesn't levy a 0% Council Tax increase.

Although this falls well short of the £9 million grant cut by the government, the extra £1 million could help safeguard valuable jobs and services that are otherwise under threat.

What a disgraceful decision.

How on earth can we hope to change peoples' attitudes to recycling and waste when we keep pandering to the worse possible practices?

Alternate fortnightly collections are becoming almost standard throughout the UK and present very few problems. The removal of a huge free weekly waste removal service concentrates attention on changing lifestyles so that we all tread just a little bit lighter on this fragile planet.

There really are no logistical, environmental, health or pest problems with properly administered alternative fortnightly waste and recycling collections.

If a weekly collection is to be retained then it should be for recyclables – and the categories extended to include all plastics and glass.

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge.

I think that you will find that when the Tories were in power they requested a £3m grant.......... Labour applied to increase that to £8.25m ....... It was then agreed by Pickles.

It is always best to check the facts.

The additional grant will also be used to help save some jobs and some services.

Yes, that aspect is excellent - but pandering to the weekly 'throw-away society' brigade does nothing to help either the environment or council finances; and more than negates the kerb-side glass recycling improvement.

Stop huggin the tree's and get real.
Southampton would never have AWC.
Its Political not as you say"There really are no logistical, environmental, health or pest problems with properly administered alternative fortnightly waste and recycling collections"There are areas within the city that cant and wont cope even with a weekly household waste collection. Have been to Nicholls Town(and other places) on the morning of collection? Its a disgrace the amount of waste that is produced in a week.Every recycle bin is contaminated because people plainly just dont care. This attitutude spreads itself pretty much through the city and beyound. Why? The fact is there is no enforcement in place and the vast turnover of population the city suffers from(students and temporary eu/asian workers. Just the way it is Im afraid.
Council policy is that recyling is voluntary so the problem is therein.
Who after 15 yrs or so of wheelie bin collections or so is going to tell a ever increasing immigrant population that if you dont recycle correctly we will fine you. My point is validated when the "good" recyclers,generally speaking" are located in areas away from student and city centre areas.

.. oh yea, let's just give up then.

I agree successive administrations have done very little to change attitudes, but does that mean we should just accept the filth and squalor you outline?

Sorry, but I say no. And what's more, £8.5m could have gone a long way to changing attitudes rather than reinforcing the throw-away society.

Other authorities have done it. It just requires a bit of leadership rather than surrender.

Didn't you whine to Ironlady about me attacking you?
So what are you doing to me?
After the labour councillors tantrum I contacted a Tory Councillor to ask a question on your behalf about if they would still work with the Labour council to get more funding from the Government they said they would.
They said they were constantly pressing Government for the grant for weekly collections.
Cllr Thorpe without saying Tories said this.
I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid.
So if you don't want polite debate please continue with this sort of post but please don't expect me not to retaliate & this time there will be no apology from me when you threaten to quit posting

I think that you will find that when the Tories were in power they requested a £3m grant.......... Labour applied to increase that to £8.25m ....... It was then agreed by Pickles.
.
It is always best to check the facts.
.
The additional grant will also be used to help save some jobs and some services.
.
So apologies for peeing on your fireworks
So your blind as well as blinkered ?
I’m happy to say this had cross-party support within the council and I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid.
so exactly who do you think lobbied government?
The clue is in Cross party support & if those people who were lobbying hadn't applied for this grant exactly how would Labour have increased the amount?
Even with you low IQ you must be able to work out that if no application had been made by the Tories Labour couldn't have asked to increase it now could they?
or is it a case of not giving credit where it's due because it means you would have to say well done the Tory Party?

It says the extra £5million that Labour put on top of the Tory bid was for Glass recycling & home Composting?
Does that mean they're giving every household Compost Bins?
If so can I take it to my allotment where I compost it already?
I take my glass to the recycle bins in 5 acres so what is this extra money being spent on?
it's a one off payment isn't it?

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge. Your devotion to the Tories 'under any circumstances' really does mark you up as a prize chump. Stop making such a fool if yourself all the time. You are not doing your cause any good at all.

In answer to your question, no. I think I made a negative comment about the absolute moronic trash you post on here, tonight being no exception. Your post tonight (that I commented on) was rubbishing the notion of officer's taking credit for the successful bid. Your current comment is about cross party support for the bid.

never understand how Southampton council can't manage their bin collections, in Eastleigh we have had alternate household waste, and recycling for years, also free of charge we have kerbside glass collection, and food waste collection,( so no smelly bins ) and for a small yearly charge green garden waste. How come our system works so well, and you our nearest neighbour, can't manage the same level of service?

So apology rescinded so I'm a pain in the arse am I?
At least I didn't call for my work colleagues to lose there jobs so I could get a little more pay did I ?
Once again why do you work for our city council when Eastleigh might need you?
is it because the pays better or aren't you qualified enough for Eastleigh?
I would congratulate any colour council if they decided to allow council tenants to have Solar Panels.
If Cllr Thorpe actually said thank you to the Tory Party for lobbying parliament to get us this money instead of just saying all councillors I would say well done Cllr Thorpe for putting praise where praise is deserved.
he even admits the groundwork was done under the tories when they put in for £3.5million & because of that they've been able to increase it.
Funny I hear no well done the Tories for getting the ball rolling from you?
Are you so up your bum you can't give praise where it's deserved?
Living in Eastleigh you seriously need to change your title.

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge. Your devotion to the Tories 'under any circumstances' really does mark you up as a prize chump. Stop making such a fool if yourself all the time. You are not doing your cause any good at all. You are enough to turn Maggie into Labour. Really!
Didn't you whine to Ironlady about me attacking you? So what are you doing to me? After the labour councillors tantrum I contacted a Tory Councillor to ask a question on your behalf about if they would still work with the Labour council to get more funding from the Government they said they would. They said they were constantly pressing Government for the grant for weekly collections. Cllr Thorpe without saying Tories said this. I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid. So if you don't want polite debate please continue with this sort of post but please don't expect me not to retaliate & this time there will be no apology from me when you threaten to quit posting
In answer to your question, no. I think I made a negative comment about the absolute moronic trash you post on here, tonight being no exception. Your post tonight (that I commented on) was rubbishing the notion of officer's taking credit for the successful bid. Your current comment is about cross party support for the bid. Is this the same thing? You are rambling again. Please sort yourself out you are a right royal p.i.t.a.
In LH's defence, his postings may be opinionated, but are seldom moronic, only a closed mind would not see the logic in what he says, I don't always agree with him, but I do look for the reasons behind what he says, it is best to keep an open mind, Coucil business should not be tainted by Party Politics but until it is free of political ties it will always be in a mess.

So apology rescinded so I'm a pain in the arse am I? At least I didn't call for my work colleagues to lose there jobs so I could get a little more pay did I ? Once again why do you work for our city council when Eastleigh might need you? is it because the pays better or aren't you qualified enough for Eastleigh? I would congratulate any colour council if they decided to allow council tenants to have Solar Panels. If Cllr Thorpe actually said thank you to the Tory Party for lobbying parliament to get us this money instead of just saying all councillors I would say well done Cllr Thorpe for putting praise where praise is deserved. he even admits the groundwork was done under the tories when they put in for £3.5million & because of that they've been able to increase it. Funny I hear no well done the Tories for getting the ball rolling from you? Are you so up your bum you can't give praise where it's deserved? Living in Eastleigh you seriously need to change your title.
Yet again you have failed to read the article properly. Cllr Thorpe acknowledges the cross party support and thanks all Cllrs involved. What more do you want? This is not a 'party political' issue yet you are trying to turn it into one. At least I have a job.....
I earn £18,000 a year before tax,I'm willing to help anyone who needs help free of charge,
I would not work for anyone who's just to lazy to do it themselves.
I've offered to teach/show some OAP's how to use the internet & set them up on it but with conmen promising the earth they haven't got back to me.
I went into schools & helped coach Rugby for no payment.
Thinklikealocal I've helped OAP's do their gardens for no payment,
After the attack on the Tory Party by a female Labour Councillor when they were agreeing to assist the Labour Council I feel it would show they haven't let that instant stop them from working for the good of the city with Labour & Cllr Thorpe could have done a lot of good for cross party working if he had acknowledged the Tories were indeed doing this?
Do you think it was the Liberals,TUSC?
I get it you don't like me but why call me a moron(moronic) you don't know me & might be surprised if you ever did sit down & talk with me.
If you work for the council ask Sue Ashdon /Ashdown ? (allotments ) what I'm like.

In this case looshead has lost the plot and his fanatic "tory are best" attitude is clouding his judgement as usual.

If the tory realy need gratification for doing their job. Then yeh well done tories for doing something that was part of their responsibilty to the electorate.

Does this makes you happy LH? will this be enough to fuel their ego enough to do the job they are paid to anyway?

Seriously, is that realy that important to you loosehead? No wonder the political world is a sty with every piggy at the troth.

The issue as someone else pointed out, is to encourage a shift in social responisbilty for domestic waste, and not encourage a "throw away" mentality.

The matter on this did come from the TUSC loosehead, It was the TUSC that told the Torys to make a claim about 2 years ago, it just had to filter down to the right person to make the claim from the Government.
You do not need to be sitting in the Council Chambers to get ideas or actions across, as you know it been the TUSC that called on the council to fight the government to get a bigger return back from the tax money colletted from this city, and the TUSC as been saying that in there manifest for the last 2 local elections, and been talking to councillors to do it.

If Cllr Thorpe actually said thank you to the Tory Party for lobbying parliament to get us this money instead of just saying all councillors I would say well done Cllr Thorpe for putting praise where praise is deserved. he even admits the groundwork was done under the tories when they put in for £3.5million & because of that they've been able to increase it. Funny I hear no well done the Tories for getting the ball rolling from you? Are you so up your bum you can't give praise where it's deserved? Living in Eastleigh you seriously need to change your title.
Yet again you have failed to read the article properly. Cllr Thorpe acknowledges the cross party support and thanks all Cllrs involved. What more do you want? This is not a 'party political' issue yet you are trying to turn it into one. At least I have a job.....
I earn £18,000 a year before tax,I'm willing to help anyone who needs help free of charge,
I would not work for anyone who's just to lazy to do it themselves.
I've offered to teach/show some OAP's how to use the internet & set them up on it but with conmen promising the earth they haven't got back to me.
I went into schools & helped coach Rugby for no payment.
Thinklikealocal I've helped OAP's do their gardens for no payment,
After the attack on the Tory Party by a female Labour Councillor when they were agreeing to assist the Labour Council I feel it would show they haven't let that instant stop them from working for the good of the city with Labour & Cllr Thorpe could have done a lot of good for cross party working if he had acknowledged the Tories were indeed doing this?
Do you think it was the Liberals,TUSC?
I get it you don't like me but why call me a moron(moronic) you don't know me & might be surprised if you ever did sit down & talk with me.
If you work for the council ask Sue Ashdon /Ashdown ? (allotments ) what I'm like.
The matter on this did come from the TUSC loosehead, It was the TUSC that told the Torys to make a claim about 2 years ago, it just had to filter down to the right person to make the claim from the Government.
You do not need to be sitting in the Council Chambers to get ideas or actions across, as you know it been the TUSC that called on the council to fight the government to get a bigger return back from the tax money colletted from this city, and the TUSC as been saying that in there manifest for the last 2 local elections, and been talking to councillors to do it.
So you are claiming credit for this..?

Don't need to make any claims, go and read the mins of all the budget meeting the Council have had for the last 2 years, and will see it in black and white so its not a claim it was what was.
Its also in the manifest and i expect it will be in the next one also.

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge.

.. well, if as you claim, it's all down to TUSC for us having continuing weekly trash collections then I say SHAME ON YOU. But I expect it’s just another baseless boast.

We need a shift away from the throw-away society. Weekly collections do not help whatsoever in the change of attitudes that are necessary if we are to start to tackle the waste and recycling agenda in an environmentally sound way.

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge. Your devotion to the Tories 'under any circumstances' really does mark you up as a prize chump. Stop making such a fool if yourself all the time. You are not doing your cause any good at all. You are enough to turn Maggie into Labour. Really!
Didn't you whine to Ironlady about me attacking you? So what are you doing to me? After the labour councillors tantrum I contacted a Tory Councillor to ask a question on your behalf about if they would still work with the Labour council to get more funding from the Government they said they would. They said they were constantly pressing Government for the grant for weekly collections. Cllr Thorpe without saying Tories said this. I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid. So if you don't want polite debate please continue with this sort of post but please don't expect me not to retaliate & this time there will be no apology from me when you threaten to quit posting
In answer to your question, no. I think I made a negative comment about the absolute moronic trash you post on here, tonight being no exception. Your post tonight (that I commented on) was rubbishing the notion of officer's taking credit for the successful bid. Your current comment is about cross party support for the bid. Is this the same thing? You are rambling again. Please sort yourself out you are a right royal p.i.t.a.
So apology rescinded so I'm a pain in the arse am I? At least I didn't call for my work colleagues to lose there jobs so I could get a little more pay did I ? Once again why do you work for our city council when Eastleigh might need you? is it because the pays better or aren't you qualified enough for Eastleigh? I would congratulate any colour council if they decided to allow council tenants to have Solar Panels. If Cllr Thorpe actually said thank you to the Tory Party for lobbying parliament to get us this money instead of just saying all councillors I would say well done Cllr Thorpe for putting praise where praise is deserved. he even admits the groundwork was done under the tories when they put in for £3.5million & because of that they've been able to increase it. Funny I hear no well done the Tories for getting the ball rolling from you? Are you so up your bum you can't give praise where it's deserved? Living in Eastleigh you seriously need to change your title.
Yet again you have failed to read the article properly. Cllr Thorpe acknowledges the cross party support and thanks all Cllrs involved. What more do you want? This is not a 'party political' issue yet you are trying to turn it into one. At least I have a job.....
I earn £18,000 a year before tax,I'm willing to help anyone who needs help free of charge,
I would not work for anyone who's just to lazy to do it themselves.
I've offered to teach/show some OAP's how to use the internet & set them up on it but with conmen promising the earth they haven't got back to me.
I went into schools & helped coach Rugby for no payment.
Thinklikealocal I've helped OAP's do their gardens for no payment,
After the attack on the Tory Party by a female Labour Councillor when they were agreeing to assist the Labour Council I feel it would show they haven't let that instant stop them from working for the good of the city with Labour & Cllr Thorpe could have done a lot of good for cross party working if he had acknowledged the Tories were indeed doing this?
Do you think it was the Liberals,TUSC?
I get it you don't like me but why call me a moron(moronic) you don't know me & might be surprised if you ever did sit down & talk with me.
If you work for the council ask Sue Ashdon /Ashdown ? (allotments ) what I'm like.

Southy I'm not going to slag you down but do you not agree after that silly womans attack on the very party her leaders were trying to get on side has been shown to be just that silly .
No matter who has a go at me the truth is the Tory Party is there lobbying for this city.
The Tory Party could quite easily have sat back & allowed this council hit the Refuse service & slashed jobs.
After all it was the Unions best form of attack using the refuse collectors but this has surely proven the Tory Party doesn't bear grudges & are more interested in saving jobs & weekly collections than any one has given them credit for doesn't it?

I know you don't slag off loose, which makes you a better person than some on here.
But I know to well that when the Torys held power in the Council, Labour often voted with the Torys on the same things, they never at any point put up alternative budget to be voted on, you never see any thing from the Labour party till they knew that they would have control of the council and then it was in there manifest and not in the council chambers, but as for job losses there was only about 100 jobs losses diference between the Torys and Labour, both partys are committed to cut jobs and services, and sod what the effects would be on the local economy.
It was the TUSC that said the council should fight government for more tax money returns.
At the moment its only the TUSC that is saying central Government should not have any council tax money, it all should go to the city to run the city and not to central government to be able to dictate to councils

The matter on this did come from the TUSC loosehead, It was the TUSC that told the Torys to make a claim about 2 years ago, it just had to filter down to the right person to make the claim from the Government.
You do not need to be sitting in the Council Chambers to get ideas or actions across, as you know it been the TUSC that called on the council to fight the government to get a bigger return back from the tax money colletted from this city, and the TUSC as been saying that in there manifest for the last 2 local elections, and been talking to councillors to do it.
So you are claiming credit for this..?
Don't need to make any claims, go and read the mins of all the budget meeting the Council have had for the last 2 years, and will see it in black and white so its not a claim it was what was.
Its also in the manifest and i expect it will be in the next one also.
.. well, if as you claim, it's all down to TUSC for us having continuing weekly trash collections then I say SHAME ON YOU. But I expect it’s just another baseless boast.

We need a shift away from the throw-away society. Weekly collections do not help whatsoever in the change of attitudes that are necessary if we are to start to tackle the waste and recycling agenda in an environmentally sound way.
The way to shift away from a throw-away society, and that is to start making goods that will last like they use to be back before the big change in the 80's, and also to start looking and implenting that socialist idea of a resouce economy

This was a great legacy the Tory Council have left us with. Weekly Collections, Jobs saved all by the Tories. WELL DONE THE TORIES![/p][/quote]Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge. Your devotion to the Tories 'under any circumstances' really does mark you up as a prize chump. Stop making such a fool if yourself all the time. You are not doing your cause any good at all. You are enough to turn Maggie into Labour. Really![/p][/quote]Didn't you whine to Ironlady about me attacking you? So what are you doing to me? After the labour councillors tantrum I contacted a Tory Councillor to ask a question on your behalf about if they would still work with the Labour council to get more funding from the Government they said they would. They said they were constantly pressing Government for the grant for weekly collections. Cllr Thorpe without saying Tories said this. I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid. So if you don't want polite debate please continue with this sort of post but please don't expect me not to retaliate & this time there will be no apology from me when you threaten to quit posting[/p][/quote]In answer to your question, no. I think I made a negative comment about the absolute moronic trash you post on here, tonight being no exception. Your post tonight (that I commented on) was rubbishing the notion of officer's taking credit for the successful bid. Your current comment is about cross party support for the bid. Is this the same thing? You are rambling again. Please sort yourself out you are a right royal p.i.t.a.[/p][/quote]So apology rescinded so I'm a pain in the arse am I? At least I didn't call for my work colleagues to lose there jobs so I could get a little more pay did I ? Once again why do you work for our city council when Eastleigh might need you? is it because the pays better or aren't you qualified enough for Eastleigh? I would congratulate any colour council if they decided to allow council tenants to have Solar Panels. If Cllr Thorpe actually said thank you to the Tory Party for lobbying parliament to get us this money instead of just saying all councillors I would say well done Cllr Thorpe for putting praise where praise is deserved. he even admits the groundwork was done under the tories when they put in for £3.5million & because of that they've been able to increase it. Funny I hear no well done the Tories for getting the ball rolling from you? Are you so up your bum you can't give praise where it's deserved? Living in Eastleigh you seriously need to change your title.[/p][/quote]Yet again you have failed to read the article properly. Cllr Thorpe acknowledges the cross party support and thanks all Cllrs involved. What more do you want? This is not a 'party political' issue yet you are trying to turn it into one. At least I have a job.....[/p][/quote]I earn £18,000 a year before tax,I'm willing to help anyone who needs help free of charge, I would not work for anyone who's just to lazy to do it themselves. I've offered to teach/show some OAP's how to use the internet & set them up on it but with conmen promising the earth they haven't got back to me. I went into schools & helped coach Rugby for no payment. Thinklikealocal I've helped OAP's do their gardens for no payment, After the attack on the Tory Party by a female Labour Councillor when they were agreeing to assist the Labour Council I feel it would show they haven't let that instant stop them from working for the good of the city with Labour & Cllr Thorpe could have done a lot of good for cross party working if he had acknowledged the Tories were indeed doing this? Do you think it was the Liberals,TUSC? I get it you don't like me but why call me a moron(moronic) you don't know me & might be surprised if you ever did sit down & talk with me. If you work for the council ask Sue Ashdon /Ashdown ? (allotments ) what I'm like.[/p][/quote]The matter on this did come from the TUSC loosehead, It was the TUSC that told the Torys to make a claim about 2 years ago, it just had to filter down to the right person to make the claim from the Government. You do not need to be sitting in the Council Chambers to get ideas or actions across, as you know it been the TUSC that called on the council to fight the government to get a bigger return back from the tax money colletted from this city, and the TUSC as been saying that in there manifest for the last 2 local elections, and been talking to councillors to do it.[/p][/quote]So you are claiming credit for this..?[/p][/quote]Don't need to make any claims, go and read the mins of all the budget meeting the Council have had for the last 2 years, and will see it in black and white so its not a claim it was what was. Its also in the manifest and i expect it will be in the next one also.[/p][/quote].. well, if as you claim, it's all down to TUSC for us having continuing weekly trash collections then I say SHAME ON YOU. But I expect it’s just another baseless boast. We need a shift away from the throw-away society. Weekly collections do not help whatsoever in the change of attitudes that are necessary if we are to start to tackle the waste and recycling agenda in an environmentally sound way.[/p][/quote]The way to shift away from a throw-away society, and that is to start making goods that will last like they use to be back before the big change in the 80's, and also to start looking and implenting that socialist idea of a resouce economy southy

Indeed, you are 100% correct IL2010.

Council tax is retained in whole by the local authority. southy was told this by the right, centre, left and even his loony left. Not one person or one single shred of evidence backed up southy's ridiculous claim. But as usual, he never admits he's wrong and after several pathetic attempts to prove the impossible he did his usual - disappeared.

Business rates – yes these do go to central government and are then redistributed back to local authorities in a way that means richer areas subsidise deprived areas. It is ALL redistributed – none is retained by the Treasury.

Don’t you think that is a fair redistribution of wealth southy? From the rich to the poor.

But no, apparently not. Just like your hero Mrs T, banging her handbag at the 1984 EU summit and demanding “we want our money back”, southy and TUSC demand that the more deprived areas of the UK should be supporting relatively more affluent Southampton on the basis that, to quote you above, “it all should go to the city”.

What a revolutionary you are, just like Mrs T.

It's strange how we have fortnightly recycling collections and yet most of the products we purchase is recyclable.

Food scraps, some of it you can put on a bird table (if you have a garden). I have always said I could cope with fortnightly collections, but I can't speak on behalf of larger families.

Southy, Government don't have our Council Tax it stays local, we been through this before!
And what about Business Council Tax, all moneys colletted for a city to run should be in the hands of that council and not central government.
Business rates – yes these do go to central government and are then redistributed back to local authorities in a way that means richer areas subsidise deprived areas. It is ALL redistributed – none is retained by the Treasury.

Don’t you think that is a fair redistribution of wealth southy? From the rich to the poor.

But no, apparently not. Just like your hero Mrs T, banging her handbag at the 1984 EU summit and demanding “we want our money back”, southy and TUSC demand that the more deprived areas of the UK should be supporting relatively more affluent Southampton on the basis that, to quote you above, “it all should go to the city”.

What a revolutionary you are, just like Mrs T.
I think it's starting in 2013 but all new business rates(new companies) will be kept by the local authorities.

Food scraps, some of it you can put on a bird table (if you have a garden). I have always said I could cope with fortnightly collections, but I can't speak on behalf of larger families.
Ironlady they say the extra money they asked Government for is Glass recycling & Composting composting home waste.
I take down potato peelings,banana skins,all lettuce & cabbage leafs plus all vegetable peelings plus tea bags .
I also take all cardboard boxes & compost them on my allotment.
meat products can't be used because of vermin(rats,Foxes) grass cutting & leafs can all be used to compost,
If you haven't got a garden ask if anyone has an allotment & if they'd like your compostable waste?
I totally agree with recycling & composting

Of one thing you can be certain, the bid was not written by anyone from the previous Tory administration. Politicians do not have the necessary skills and knowledge. Your devotion to the Tories 'under any circumstances' really does mark you up as a prize chump. Stop making such a fool if yourself all the time. You are not doing your cause any good at all. You are enough to turn Maggie into Labour. Really!
Didn't you whine to Ironlady about me attacking you? So what are you doing to me? After the labour councillors tantrum I contacted a Tory Councillor to ask a question on your behalf about if they would still work with the Labour council to get more funding from the Government they said they would. They said they were constantly pressing Government for the grant for weekly collections. Cllr Thorpe without saying Tories said this. I thank those councillors who also lobbied government on behalf of Southampton and our bid. So if you don't want polite debate please continue with this sort of post but please don't expect me not to retaliate & this time there will be no apology from me when you threaten to quit posting
In answer to your question, no. I think I made a negative comment about the absolute moronic trash you post on here, tonight being no exception. Your post tonight (that I commented on) was rubbishing the notion of officer's taking credit for the successful bid. Your current comment is about cross party support for the bid. Is this the same thing? You are rambling again. Please sort yourself out you are a right royal p.i.t.a.
In LH's defence, his postings may be opinionated, but are seldom moronic, only a closed mind would not see the logic in what he says, I don't always agree with him, but I do look for the reasons behind what he says, it is best to keep an open mind, Coucil business should not be tainted by Party Politics but until it is free of political ties it will always be in a mess.
Thank You Very much for your post
It's not really a case of agreeing or disagreeing with his posts, it's trying to make sense of them!

Loosehead, so much could be done for recycling, but I'm afraid it's too convenient for some to chuck everything in a bin.

I wash tins, empty milk cartons and recycle them. Can you honestly imagine others to do the same when they can't even respect their own neighbourhood?

I'll give an example, Tonight I cooked lasagne. The pasta came in a cardboard box (recyclable) The mince in a plastic package (recyclable), the jar of white sauce (recyclable) The Dolmio sauce (recyclable) The cheese came in plastic (recyclable). The salad came in a packet (recyclable).

I haven't yet used my bin! Even the oxo cubes are foil wrapped and can go in (recyclable).

Until fines are imposed we won't see any change.

To all I try to post on here in open debate.
If I'm proven to be wrong I'll gladly put my hands up but once in a while I retaliate to constantly being called a liar or hypocrite.
This is a site for all political views to be expressed & debate on the merits of each persons point of view but surely we should have our eyes open & look at both sides of the debate?
Not rip into someone because we're losing the debate?
I will quite happily leave these posts alone so certain people can always be right no matter how wrong they are.

Don't take things so personally. You make great comments and others will always disagree. It would be very boring if everyone agreed with you ;-)

I can see both sides of any debate, I put my points forward and if someone doesn't agree, well that's their opinion. I'm not always right and I know that, so have to accept that others feel they are right when infact I personally feel they are wrong.

All this name calling doesn't create a debate, it just makes it a playground for personal attacks.

I hope it's many & the refuse jobs are safe.
I only need to put out my rubbish (both) once a month tops but I know others need the service every week.

.. it's good you only need to put out the waste monthly. Mine is down to about 8 per year.

The others you know who need it weekly really do need to change their lifestyles. And that is precisely what fortnightly waste collections impose upon society; and rightly so. It is a fundamental chance to attitudes and habits that are needed. You've done it, so have I as well as IronLady2010. There are NO reasons why others can't follow, but it will never happen while our pathetic council (previous Tory and current Labour) pander to the very worse practices.

There is no need for job losses. Increased recycling, including glass and green kitchen waste will not only help to encourage the required lifestyle changes but will also take up the employment slack caused fortnightly waste collections.

We seem to be almost on the same side on this one at a personal level - it's the dinosaurs at the Civic (officers and councillors) that need to get real.

I will quite happily leave these posts alone so certain people can always be right no matter how wrong they are.
Don't take things so personally. You make great comments and others will always disagree. It would be very boring if everyone agreed with you ;-)

Freefinker I use to do leafletting with my wife to let her earn some pocket money(holiday).
We did Millbrook estate & the Channel islands estate we dis previously do A big chunk of Freemantle & Shirley.
Even with weekly collections both bins would be full with junk in both of them & plastic bags on the street.
In shirley by Grove Road in the strike with one week missed there were mountains of plastic bags,
I like you am 100% behind recycling but how could you change these type of peoples attitudes?
give them more recycle bins for glass etc; & more than likely it would be filled with any rubbish they have.
I can see the out cry if you were to fine them but I can see that something has to be done.
I saw a program about Brazil & a guy who made billions collecting rubbish for landfill.
he was rubbing his hands with glee,China was willing to pay top dollar for all recyclable materials so he had an army sorting through it.
Here there was talks of giving you a pay back for recyclable goods( full bin) on your council tax what do you think would get a change in attitude?

.. it needs a combination of approaches.
Yes, council tax rebate for recyclables could work.
An extension of what they take for recycling - all plastics and separate kerbside glass collections - would also be advantageous.
Perhaps 'pay by weight' for the non-recyclables - you get a free allowance (depending on household size); you are charged if you exceed and rebated if under.
All these things have been tried (although some not in the UK) and they work.
But the cheapest and most efficient starter for the re-education that is needed is the very simple adoption of fortnightly waste collections. Every authority that has introduced it has seen a reduction in waste and an increase in recycling. You only need to look at all Southampton’s surrounding authorities to see the positive results.
