Number 7 Peak Hill Gardens have contaminated their recycling, and the council have refused to collect it for the last two weeks.

The bin has been sitting on the pavement since May 14 and is now overflowing. It is attracting flies, worms, foxes and other pests.

Please can this be collected ASAP as it is becoming a health hazard.

  • The bin is contaminated every single week. Filled with banana skins, soiled wrappers, and household waste that can't be recycled.

    The collectors don't even put a red notice tag on it anymore, as it has been contaminated and sat on the curb for weeks.
