In addition to the £3.7 million Barnet is spending on new recycling bins and food caddies, I saw last week in a Delegated Powers Report that Barnet are spending £26,343 on biodegradable food caddy liners. Every household will get a roll of ten bags. It is not much in the scheme of things but do we really need liners. We already have a kitchen caddy which we purchased ourselves (£4.99 at Robert Dyas) and we simply wash it out daily. We put the waste in the green bin (which will not be allowed in future) which we also wash out regularly. To me it is £26,343 wasted and it may also set expectation from some residents that they will be provided on a regular basis - which I don't think is the intention.
A bit more common sense please.
