Refuse collectors repeatedly not doing their job

Reported in the Rubbish (refuse and recycling) category by Nathan Samuel at 12:22, Thu 29 June 2017

This is the fourth time this has happened. The city council have refused to supply me with a brown bin for my rubbish, so I have to resort to leaving bags on the street. Sometimes the collectors handle the bags improperly, causing them to rip open and rubbish to spread everywhere. I have watched them do this; they simply shrug their shoulders, push the rubbish away with their feet and carry on. The level of laziness shown by Plymouth's refuse collectors is incredible, the streets are disgusting and with the new fortnightly rules, this will only increase over time.
