Take away the huge recycling bags

It is clear that the new recycling bags are not being well accepted in our community.

They haven't even started officially yet and people are already sick of this huge bags and worried about how these bags will be stored in small houses or flats.

We are also worried about how in a global pandemic we are expected to put inside our homes a bag that has been in the road and touched by bin man potentially causing spread of virus and diseases.

Not to mention the fact that the bags are already flying all over the roads and pavements and they are becoming a hazard specially for cars.

We are asking Brentwood Borough County Council, to give us back our orange recycling bags or even better, colour coded wheelie bins like most towns all over the UK have. We want the council to take these huge, useless bags away and stop thinking about saving money as our taxes are not being saved and we, the people paying our council taxes expect our money to be used to make our lives better and not a chore like these bags have already become.
