Letter - Refuse staff are friendly and helpful

After much adverse criticism that Wakefield Council get in your newspaper I would like to thank them for appointing Shanks to run the refuse collection facility in Denby Dale Road.

The staff are friendly and helpful, they even help you unload your rubbish and make a chore into a welcome experience!

Privatisation is generally frowned upon but I would say that in this instance it works very well and hopefully helps to keep our council tax down.
