The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Is it correct that the Council recently went through the rubbish thrown out by residents in the Coley area of the town? If so, why was this done, who actually performed the search and what controls were in place to ensure that any personal information was safely handled?

Yours faithfully,

N J Greenaway
