Our last pick up was 22nd dec next pick up will be 10th jan council promised pick up would be this week as per their advert in local paper phoned council yesterday to be told same but a pack of lies
Bin lorry was in Hermitage Park on Sunday 26th December (Boxing Day!) Operatives wandered up and down street looking for bins to empty; none were out of course, as pick up wasn't expected until the following day. They could have sounded their horn, rung a few bells, been a bit pro-active, but left having emptied one bin in the entire street.
DID GET A PHONE CALL FROM COUNCIL TO EXPLAIN PROBLEM THE MAIN PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT THEY THEMSELVES DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON
