SIR - Your article entitled "Kicking Up A Stink Over Waste" gives the impression that alleged odour problems at Arlesey landfill site are caused by alternate weekly waste collection in the district.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The article did not state that the waste was from Arlesey. Indeed much of the waste is from a London Borough which also operates the same two-weekly collection service which is causing so much distress to so many residents in Mid Beds.
