Walsall Council collects our household rubbish, recycling and garden waste. What is stopping them from collecting our scrap iron?
No, I’m serious about this! Why shouldn’t the Council, either directly or at arms length through owner operators, take this issue by the scruff of the neck and go into the scrap business? By doing this the issue of who should or should not be collecting our scrap iron etc would be solved overnight.
Residents would know that those collecting their unwanted metal goods could be trusted. The only vehicles licensed for this purpose would be displaying the Council logo, and there would be no need for a charge as I’m told scrap metal is “a good little earner”. The cash the Council received for your scrap would go towards improving or sustaining services, so residents would be doing their bit towards recycling and helping to improve services.
