LETTER: Tax through the back door

Share this article

Until 2013, as a service to me as a Council Tax payer, ELDC collected my green waste.

The council has now withdrawn this facility and is willing to reinstate it if I pay £25 per annum.

ELDC tells me that my tax has risen by only 2%, which ignores the extra money I am having to pay to maintain the level of service provided in 2013. In reality, my tax has risen by 19%.
