Recycling collection mess

The pictures attached show the mess left behind after the recycling lorry has been. This is appalling, I know the weather isn't the nicest but it did not cause this mess as the area was fine before they came. I was up and walking the dog at the time. This happens every week, what is the point in recycling to try and improve our environment when this happens every time the bins are emptied. You never see this sort of mess in warrington so maybe it is time the blue bins were adopted here.

  • Reply was slow from the council and very passive aggressive, they took no responsibility and blamed everyone but their staff. To be fair though there has been less litter on the streets though.
