The campaign I led to get Labour-run Reading Borough Council to reinstate end of term waste collections in the University area has been successful.
The Council has confirmed today that extra collections will be taking place to ensure residents do not have to put up with rubbish for weeks on end after students go home for the summer.
Labour tried to blame the cut on us, but it is they who control the Council and the services it provides to residents.
You can read more about our campaign and the background to this issue over on our ward blog.
