Binmen won't collect from behind the wall

As above, our binmen seem to frequently miss our bins if they are not put out on the verge. The wall is only 1 foot high and there is a straight path to the front door.

In fairness, this only seems to happen every 4 weeks, but it is still annoying

  • To me it seems that the binmen would rather be in the right than actually solve things. As public servants, they should say "No problem - we will walk that extra 1 metre to get the bin" and smile cheerfully while doing so.

    Instead I got excuses. If you could see what they're avoiding doing, you would laugh.
