HAVE YOUR SAY on plans to cut bin col­lec­tions

The Oban Times - - News -

He­len Szynk, Loch Awe

‘It’s un­ac­cept­able, es­pe­cially in the sum­mer. The bins will at­tract flies and ver­min.’

Mary MacInnes, Oban

‘It’s ridicu­lous. I live on my own so it will be okay, but I am think­ing about peo­ple who don’t. ‘ The bins will be stink­ing and the seag­ulls will be even worse. It will be smelly and it’s not hy­gienic.’

Mark El­lis, 53, Oban

‘ What if you have fish and things in your bin? It would stink. It’s not on. You don’t want rub­bish stay­ing out for three weeks. It’s too long. It’s all cut­backs. What about the staff ? If they are col­lect­ing the bins less, will jobs be lost?’

An­drew Ven­nard, 36, Oban

‘I have a com­mu­nal bin, so it won’t af­fect me, but it will af­fect other peo­ple. How­ever, they ob­vi­ously have to do it for fi­nan­cial rea­sons. It’s ei­ther that or schools or some­thing.’

May Fu­ton, Oban

‘I live in a block of flats and ev­ery two weeks is fine, but at the end of the two weeks the bins are full. So three weeks is a bit of a stretch. There will be nowhere to put the rub­bish.’

Cather­ine Ren­nie, Kre­ith

‘If they changed my bins to a three-week col­lec­tion that would re­ally hack me off. If it was ev­ery three weeks the bins would be over­flow­ing and the bin men might not take them be­cause of that.’
