  • Crediton Lib Dems Campaign Against the Tories Garden Tax
    Petition: Jan 14, 2015

    "We the undersigned oppose the new £50 'garden tax' being imposed by the Conservative run Mid Devon District Council. This is an important service for residents and we call on the Council to remove the charge."

    The new "Garden Tax" is being brought in by the Conservatives on Mid Devon District Council. From October your wheelie bin will only be emptied if you pay £50 a year to have your garden waste collected. People who do not wish to pay the £50 will either have to compost all their garden waste themselves or take it to Ashley Recycling Centre, near Tiverton or Punch Bowl Recycling Centre near Crediton. This will obviously be awkward for everyone. The amount of green waste produced by even a small garden can be substantial. Not everyone has the space for a costly composter and how will the elderly and those without cars get to Ashley or Punch Bowl Recycling Centres?

    Article: Dec 2, 2014

    Lib Dem campaigners in Teignbridge are finding overwhelming support for their campaign against the Tory Garden Tax.

    Thousands of residents across Teignbridge are backing calls for a new council 'garden tax' to be scrapped.

    The council plans to charge residents £35 a year to take away their garden waste, grass and hedge clippings, in the green wheelie bin. And while Teignbridge expects a cash bonanza of around £650,000 from the tax next year, its recycling rates are falling and more waste is being sent to landfill, the council's own figures show.
