I am writing in response to the letter 'Bag or bins - I don't want a bin by my window' (Letters March 18).
I have been happy to answer several letters recently from residents who want to know what will happen when wheelie bins are introduced across the borough and how it will affect them.

The Waste Education Officers will also supply you with an introduction pack which will explain in detail the scheme, and what to do if you have a large family or have mobility issues.
