When Derby City Council canceled the Christmas waste collection, local UKIP Councillors stepped in. Councillor Alan Graves and fellow UKIP member Councillor John Evans held a waste collection in Alvaston on December 28 last year.
However, it was under threat this year due to to the fact that neither posses a waste collection license and they could have faced a £5,000 fine under Environmental Agency legislation. Reluctantly, the Councillors called the collection off, however, UKIP members and the Councillors will be stepping-forward on Thursday, December 27 to collect rubbish in Alvaston and Boulton.
Josh Robinson, owner of Robinson Garden Services in Alfreton, offered his services and licence and will be involved in the collection next week.
He said: “I’m trying to start up my own business so I recently got a waste carriers licence. I’m helping them out because many people have helped me before, so its only fair that I give something back.”
