PEOPLE across the Portsmouth area are being forced to pay some of the country’s highest charges for councils to dispose of bulky household waste, it is today being revealed.

The news has come to light following a nationwide study which unveiled the ‘postcode lottery’ faced by residents when it came to getting rid of large items like cookers and fridges via council-run collection services.
