IN November, GO Wright of Sadberge suggested that, because of the warmer weather, Darlington council should continue collecting the garden waste wheelie bins into December, rather than stopping in November (HAS, Nov 25).

I am sure this suggestion has received support from some users of the facility.

Now the growing season is beginning and people are being asked to renew their green bin licences, so people should put on their renewal applications a request for longer collections.

There must have been approaching 5,000 wheelie bins not being utilised between November and March in Darlington.
