Council charging twice for refuse collection. Are they allowed?
3 replies 81 views
I live on an estate of flats in Lambeth and have found out that the council charge the company who own the freehold to collect refuse. Obviously this charge is paid for in the form of a service charge by the residents. So in affect we are charged twice by the council to collect refuse - once as council tax payers, and once as flat residents. Are the council allowed to do this? And is this a common occurence amongst MSE members?
