Council tax? Rubbish

1. You may have been a perfectly law-abiding citizen all your life but a half raised bin lid is gonna tarnish that spotless criminal record.

2. Council tax continues to rise unabated while your local authorities collect your rubbish half as often as they used to.

If you're still struggling to find a connection between statements 1, and 2, then take a look at this story from the BBC and it'll all make sense. You may as well google cost effective. The words "local" and "authorities" won't come up.

However, you'll find out why local councils need hard cash to employ their teams of investigators, photographers, enforcement officers and then take those rubbish cases to court.
