Mike is supporting the Poets Corner Nursery, in a disagreement over waste collection charges that could force them to close.
Mike was contacted by the Poets Corner Nursery after they received enormous bills for waste collection from PHS Wastetech. The owner of the nursery was completely unaware that the charges for the nursery’s waste collection had increased to over £100 for a weekly collection.
Commenting, Mike said: “Nurseries like the Poets Corner Nursery provide a valuable service in our community. I have written to the manager of PHS Wastetech requesting that the issue is reviewed as a matter of urgency. It is important that large companies, particularly during a dispute, treat their customers fairly.”
Nursery owner Lynn Hoare added, “I was never informed that prices were rocketing up. Money was just taken from the nursery’s bank account by direct debit. It is disgraceful that PHS expects me to pay in the region of £5,000 per year for emptying one small bin once a week.”
