Stacey has brought her newborn son home for the first time (Picture: Instagram/@staceysolomon) Stacey Solomon has shared another heart-melting picture of her new baby boy, admitting she would put him back inside her tummy for another year given the chance. Lying on a sofa next to her son’s cot, Stacey revealed they have now taken him home for the first time, writing: ‘welcome home, my love. Feeling ridiculously teary today. He’s just so teeny and precious and I want to do the very best I can by him. ‘I never thought I’d say this but If I could put him back inside my tummy for another year I would.’ Stacey later commented on the photo again after reading the lovely comments and well wishes from her followers: ‘The messages on here are just so lovely. Obviously I’ve burst in to tears reading them but I’m a good way so thank you.’ It looks like the couple are going to keep their baby’s face a secret for now, as all pictures of him have been blurred so far. The new addition to Stacey and boyfriend Joe Swash’s family was born earlier this week and is the couple’s first baby together. Joe has found himself a dad for the second time and celebrated the birth of his son with an emotional Instagram post documenting the first time they met. View this post on Instagram Just been sent this photo and I think my face sums up exactly how I was feeling after seeing my amazing Partner to the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen. And the realisation that this little person was the best half of both of us. A post shared by Joe Swash (@realjoeswashy) on May 25, 2019 at 6:15am PDT Stacey has already treated us to a number of pictures of her bundle of joy, including adorable black and white photos of her two sons meeting their new baby brother. Zachary, 11, and Leighton, 7, gave their mum kisses as she breastfed the new baby. Baby Swash/Solomon was born a month earlier than expected, but Stacey is wasting no time in getting back to work as she is planning to take only two weeks off from the Loose Women panel. [metro-tag-post-strip] ‘They have been really good about saying take the time that you need and they will have me back which is really amazing,’ said the former X Factor star of the ITV bosses. ‘You are so replaceable and if you’re not there then someone else is going to jump at the chance to do it. Nothing is guaranteed and we are all freelance.’ [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/26/gentleman-jack-viewers-feel-anne-lister-attempts-explain-gender-identity-young-boy-9694834/” title=”Gentleman Jack viewers feel for Anne Lister as she attempts to explain gender identity to a young boy”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/26/claudia-winkleman-admits-evil-tess-daley-making-come-round-house-9694317/” title=”Claudia Winkleman admits she’s ‘evil’ to Tess Daley… by making her come round to her house”]

It seems Woodland residents who face the prospect of paying $15 fees for “contamination” and “overage’ of their recyclables and trash aren’t the only ones upset at Waste Management. Woodland city officials are also irked and calling on the nationwide waste disposal firm to delay the fees from their June 1 rollout to Jan. 1, 2020. In a letter authored by City Manager Paul Navazio to Kayla Rodriguez, public sector manager of Waste Management in Woodland, questions are raised about whether the reputed first-in-the-nation experiment using “SmartTruck” technology is permitted under its current contract and that definitions on what constitutes “overage” in a trash toter are unclear. Waste Management created a local brouhaha beginning in early May when it notified property owners that it would be implementing the surcharges. The company warned residents in December 2018 during a rate-hike hearing before the City Council that people had to clean up their recyclable containers as well as keep the amount of trash from overflowing those 46-inch tall, 96-gallon toters. Unclean recyclables and throwing away more than a fair share of trash costs the company more. Additionally, now that China is no longer taking America’s recyclables, Waste Management needs to pay more to dispose of plastics, metals and paper. Like many cities, Woodland has a contract with Waste Management to dispose of trash, recyclables and yard waste. The more efficient the company is in its job the more money it makes. That means keeping trash to minimal amounts to keep landfill disposal fees down, getting money back on recyclables and selling yard waste for biomass power production if possible. The letter, authored by Matt Fryer, director of operations for Waste Management Northern California Nevada, reported that with the introduction of “SmartTruck technology” the company can document how much and what kinds of recyclables and trash is being tossed at each individual pickup site with a combination of cameras and GPS mapping. But while the technique may be innovative, the method has drawn concern for its short rollout and vague method of calculating what is “overage.” “For example, prior to implementation, city staff was assured that surcharges would only be applied to customers that grossly overfilled their containers, not merely where a lid wouldn’t close,” according to Navazio’s letter to Rodriguez. “However, the photographic evidence Waste Management has provided of commercial customers ‘overfilling’ their containers has been, at best, inconsistent and show in some instances containers that are not grossly overfilled but, rather, have lids that will not fully close. “The information Waste Manage has provided the city seems to demonstrate that Wate Management has considered any container that will not fully close to be overfilled, and thus, the monthly surcharges for overfilled containers has increased by more than ten-fold after system implementation,” Navazio writes. Navazio notes that having “objective standards for an overfilled container will be “absolutely critical prior to a rollout of this technology to residential customers.” He feels both the city and Waste Management must address this issue prior to the rollout of SmartTruck technology. “That process will involve drafting clear, written standards that the average Waste Management residential customer will be able to understand, with clear pictures and written standards for when surcharges will be applied,” he states. “These standards will also include guidelines for how SmartTruck images will be evaluated by Waste Management and procedures for how customers will be notified of assessed surcharges.” Navazio also states in his letter that city staff have been asking for “standards and guidelines” from Waste Management for the past six months and that while company staff have agreed on the need to “demonstrate transparency, consistency and fairness through proper documentation of how the program will be implemented” it hasn’t done so. Navazio’s letter does on to detail areas needing clarification within the contract the city has with Waste Management that cover such issues as the implementation of new technology, authorization of rates such as those for “overage” and “commercial mixed organics service rates.” The letter goes on to state that another section of the contract allows for recycling and organics contamination surcharges but that Waste Management “may only apply those surcharges after first leaving the container unemptied along with a non-collection notice specifying instructions for the proper procedures for setting out organic waste” and being able to collect that waste only after reaching an agreement with the customer. Navazio’s letter concludes stating that the advent of new technologies “offers exciting opportunities for innovation and the city is pleased to be a leader in exploring these possibilities. As other jurisdictions look to our experience for insight on development of their own programs, we want to be able to share with them a story of close collaboration focused on the values of transparency, consistency and fairness in implementing new technologies that improve service for Woodland residents. “This means that we need to work together to think through the implications of how these new approaches affect WM’s Woodland customers and the steps both the city and WM need to take to ensure the program’s success,” Navazio states.
