A £25 charge is being introduced in March next year, but will you be paying it?

The change, which will come into force from March next year, is expected to save the council more than £800,000 per year.
But do you think it’s fair that you should have to pay extra?
Local authorities in County Durham, Gateshead and Newcastle already charge for the collection of garden waste.
