Shadow Commuinites and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles has pledged that a Conservative Government would stop bullying and penalising Councils which operate weekly refuse collection. Pickles says that under Labour the rat population has increased to 80 million due o the ant-weekly collections policy. Fly-tipping has soared.

The decision on weekly collection will still rest with local councils but Pickles will provide financial incentives to encourage weekly collections – with funds raised from abolition of Quangos.
