Residents call for action on speeding, recycling and potholes in Clacton
12:00pm Sunday 10th March 2013 in News
RESIDENTS in Clacton have called for action to be taken over speeding, recycling and potholes.
Council bosses were put on the spot by residents during Tendring Council’s cabinet’s Question Time event.
The event was the third of its kind in the district and saw local politicians questioned at St James Church Hall, in Tower Road, on Wednesday.
Residents also asked why Tendring is recycling less plastic materials than before and only collecting a certain grade of plastic.
Nick Turner, cabinet member for environment, said: “We collect and recycle those materials where there is a viable market and that means we can provide you with an affordable service whilst also saving £450,000 a year and keeping council tax bills down.
“And, it is a fact, that when previously all plastics were collected it did not mean they were all being recycled and those that could not be sold on were sent to landfill in the end anyway.”
