Green Bin charge for Collection

Rutland County Councillors will discuss the introduction of an annual charge for green waste services at their next Full Council meeting on Monday 11 September 2017.

The plans would see a charge of £35 per year introduced from April 2018, helping the Council to reduce the overall cost of collecting and disposing of Rutland's waste, which has risen to almost £2million a year.

While more and more green waste is being produced locally, the amount of money the Council is able to recover from recycled materials has fallen. This has contributed to a rise in the overall cost of our waste services, meaning it's becoming too expensive to continue providing green waste collection for free. We need to look at alternatives and this is felt to be a reasonable change that would help to protect the service long-term. The proposal would not apply to general household waste or recycling and there would be no change to how regularly bins More »

are collected. » Less

NEW SCAM

Scam Alert - A new fake email claiming to be from BT is attempting to trick victims into automatically downloading Dridex banking malware.

The emails entitled 'New BT bill' contains a link that automatically downloads a malicious file called 'BT bill.zip' once clicked. What makes this scam email unique is the Dridex malware starts downloading without a webpage being opened.

Once installed, the Dridex malware is designed to steal personal information such as usernames and passwords by eavesdropping, with the ultimate goal of getting into bank accounts and stealing cash. More »

If you receive one of these emails do not click on any links. Instead, go to the BT website directly and log in from there to view your bills. BT would never send you an email with an attachment.

Another scam claiming to be from BT is a call saying they are sending out a new hub as BT has been subjected to a cyber-attack. They then ask you to start your computer and tell you what settings to change. This can also lead to malware being downloaded and result in personal information being stolen. As above, go to the BT website, get a contact phone number for the support team and check any details with them. » Less
