Say no to the Welwyn Hattfield Bin Tax!
So, the Conservative Council forced through this Bin Tax. Thanks for all the hard work put in by everyone, we managed close to 3,000 signatures in our campaign and we spoke to lots of residents!
The campaign isn’t over and you can be sure that Labour Councillors will continue to hold this Council to account.
What can you do to help?

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is pushing ahead with plans to charge residents to have their brown bins collected despite this being
a) terrible for recycling levels that are crucial in keeping council tax low
b) ridiculous in a borough that’s home to a ‘Garden City’ and lots of HMO”s
c) morally dubious given senior councillors have just given themselves huge pay-rises
