A MOTHER of five caught in a recycling row has thanked supporters after being given a wheelie bin.
Dawn Radford, 41 of Meliden, hit the headlines early in March when Denbighshire Council refused to give her a wheelie bin to help deal with the family waste.
Now she says she “appreciates” those who supported her, as she was recently provided with a bin big enough to help recycle the waste produced by six people.
Miss Radford said: “I would like show my appreciation of County Councillor Peter Duffy for his time, effort, help and phone calls in helping me get the recycling wheelie bins because without his help I would not have got them. All I wanted to do was have the right to recycle my own rubbish.”
In March, Miss Radford, a single mother who is on incapacity benefit due to depression, said she was “too scared” to put her bins out after being warned for fly tipping after putting her rubbish out “too early”.
Since then, Denbighshire council has given her a wheelie bin, so she has the same facility enjoyed by her neighbours.
County Councillor Peter Duffy who helped fight for the bins said: “Thank you to those who supported Dawn Radford's right to have recycling wheelie bins like everybody else. Also I would like to thank Jim Aspley from the public realm department for his help and support in getting the recycling bins delivered.”
