M SIMPSON (The Press, May 4) tells us their green bin sticker is peeling off already.

Ours started to come off the day after it went on. Well done, City of York Council, for another complete waste of taxpayers’ money.

I have a solution, though, which a retired teacher friend of ours shared with us: “sticky back plastic”.

Cut a square a good bit larger than the sticker, peel the backing off, and use the clear backing to cover your sticker. Ours has remained stuck down, even through the heavy rain this weekend.
