Black bin didn’t get emptied, called council they said no log is yet available call back. Called back the log was the bin is too heavy. Of course it is, it’s full of rubbish. I said I will empty it, to make lighter? They told me to do so but still will not collect the bin any earlier. The bin was not over flowing! It’s lazyness. The bin man moved the bin half way down the street before deciding it’s too heavy. And they wonder why people fly tip. Bins either don’t get emptied round here or get stolen and burnt at the abandoned houses.
