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.

We understand some residents will have questions about the wheelie bin scheme. We aim to begin the delivering the bins in the early summer.

Prior to the bins being delivered, Waste Education Officers will visit residents to explain how to use the bin and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

As we did in the successful pilots we want to work closely with residents to alleviate any concerns.

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.
