Thousands more residents across Lincolnshire could soon have to pay 25 pounds a year to have their garden waste bin emptied, in a move that's being considered to generate money for the council.
People living in North Kesteven will join those in South Kesteven who already pay the charge from next year, if the idea is approved. Barcoded stickers are also likely to be used to keep track of who's paid and who hasn't.
A strike by waste collectors in Doncaster has been called off. The union UNITE was planning to carry out continuous industrial action in a row over pay. Staff walked out on Friday 21st September and Monday 24th September.
There will be no green bin collections for people living in Doncaster today. Refuse collectors who are part of the Unite union are staging the first of six one day strikes in a row over pay. Black bins will still be picked up there will be some disruption.
Talks are due to be held to stop a strike by binmen in Sheffield over pay and conditions. Employees claim they haven't received a pay rise for the last two years.
