Liverpool City Council is set to introduce a garden waste collection charge of £40 per year.
The local authority says this is in a bid to manage their budget as they need to find £24.5 million of savings next year.
Rather than cutting frontline services, they're introducing additional charges for some things to offset the impact.
But what do you think about charging for a basic service?
‘I think it’s extortionate’
Dave says: “I think it’s extortionate we already pay a fortune for council tax; shouldn’t that be included in it?”
‘I'm not happy about it’
Caroline says: "Well, I'm not happy about it because I've got elderly grandparents, and I worry about them having that charge. Obviously, a lot of people have had COVID and things like that which has affected things."
‘I think it's all wrong’
Alan says: "I think it's all wrong. I disagree with it."
