In Stevenage we have a garden waste collection each fortnight from March until November and one in December and we are grateful for this.

But gardening does not stop because the calendar says it is winter and any diligent gardener will still be working throughout the winter. Those of us who are tenants are required to keep our gardens in good order and those who own their homes will want to keep the value by presenting a tidy garden.

With global warming, shorter and milder winters and early spring gardening is a year round job.

My bin is already half full and smells and I have to wait until March to have it emptied. I am elderly and cannot cart it out to my car to take it to the recycling centre.

Come on Stevenage, what about a collection at the end of January or beginning of February please?
