Yes, you read that right.

In Lewisham for 2023/24 it is rising from £85 to £93.50, a 9.95% increase,

"We have tried to keep our subscription charges as low as possible, however due to increased operational costs imposed upon the service we have had to raise the subscription fee for the coming year to £93.50"

The previous year it rose by £6.25%, £80 to £85.

Feels like those with gardens are being penalised, DISGRACEFUL.

I wouldn’t find it quite so outrageous if they emptied mine regularly. I have had to email (again) this week after realising that it hadn’t been touched since I was last gardening in mid January.
