You have my assurance that this is positively my final written word on the subject.

Having returned recently from holiday, I found that I was the recipient of two bins, despite my having written to the council instructing it to the contrary.

I contacted the council requesting removal and they have duly been taken away.

In the meantime, I wrote to the head of department and to the council's legal department in order to ensure that my refusal broke no laws.

Your readers may take note that, in reply, I have been informed that residents who do not wish to use bins may not and can continue to use bags.

The council will not provide the black bags and will discontinue the sale of white garden refuse bags, although it will continue with the orange bag scheme. However, it will continue to collect the white bags until its customers' supply is exhausted.

Residents that have already received bins and do not want them must contact the council and request that they are removed. The council will then take them away from your home.

My apologies for stretching your patience further but I felt it advisable that your readers should be made fully aware of their rights regarding this controversial issue.
