Continuous domestic waste on pavement

The bins here are continuously completely overflowing. The pictures I have taken are before ‘bin day’ and then after bin day - you can see the bins have been emptied but the waste is left on the floor. This problem has been constant for well over a year - who is taking respo sublimity for it? I note there are no recycling bins next to the black bins so the recent move to a twice monthly collection will not help matters. We want to see permenant action! I have a good mind to collect all the rubbish and take it to the council head office and leave it on their doorstep. We need a permenant fix for this issue. If the issue lies with the owners of the bins why are they not being dealt with? If the issue is that the owners of the bins a can not be relied upon to use them is a socially responsible manner that what is the council doing about that?

  • Had to walk in road as too much rubbish including split bags of food on pavement. Rubbish belongs to co-op. Whole area smells.
