Concerns have been raised after Banbridge District Council unveiled plans to empty household general waste bins only once a month.

The council ran a pilot with 1,500 households from January to June and, having declared that a success, the programme will now be rolled out across half the district from September.

When rolled out across the entire district the measure is expected to save ratepayers a third of £1m each year.
