Letter to the Echo

Dear Editor,

During the autumn/winter months it often occurs to me just what a problem leaves can be. The trees lining our streets are the responsibility of Cory’s, and so is the clearance of the leaves from the pavement, etc… But what happens when the leaves from the council trees end up in the garden of a private individual?

I spent one hour cleaning dead leaves from a resident’s path on Boscombe Road last week. Whilst the activity was worthwhile the resident stated that they felt annoyed about not having a special bag for garden waste.

Whose responsibility is it for clearing these leaves and obtaining a special bag for garden waste?

It is out of order when other people have to take responsibility for the inaction of others!
