I ATTENDED a special meeting on July 31, held in the Town Hall, Weston.It was called to discuss refuse and its collection, for it would appear that from a financial position we were not getting a good deal; nor were we giving enough thought to the future of waste management and its disposal.Any fool can spend and 'waste' money, so let's listen to the experts, especially local businessmen, before decisions are reached.I would like to see waste collection, and the 'green' boxes collected on the same day to avoid confusion.It's important that everything is recycled for this planet is rapidly running out of resources.Just to dig a hole as in landfill is no longer an option - everything can be used - when on the council, I tried to get 'plastic' recycled. I now see that China is buying all the plastic it can, to turn into clothing. So solutions can be found, especially if we find them in North Somerset.Cross the county border and it will cost an extra tax.JOHN CARTERAddicott Road, Weston
