Seems that instead of me paying St Albans District Council to keep the streets clean. Now I'm meant to keep the streets clean and pay for it...
RESIDENTS are being urged to come together in a bid to clean up the streets of St Albans.
St Albans District Council's annual litter pick will run from March 28 to April 5.
Between this time, schools, youth or community groups, residents' associations, or even a group of friends and neighbours, can rally round to clean their local area.
The council will provide volunteers with the litter picking tools, refuse sacks, gloves and information packs.
Once the litter is gathers, the council's contractor, Enterprise will remove the sacks of rubbish.
Sounds all very nice and "green". Or should that be Orwellian...
Anyway, I only have one question. Why the hell do I pay so much council tax?
