THERE was a huge re­sponse on The

Oban Times Face­book page to the news that Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil is to in­tro­duce three-weekly bin col­lec­tions.

Kirsty Chalmers posted: ‘Ridicu­lous I have 2 re­cy­cle bins and a green one, there’s 3 of us and some pets and I still strug­gle with them be­ing full the way it is. Seag­ulls have also been lift­ing the green bin lids and pulling ev­ery­thing out!’

Mal­colm Sinclair wrote: ‘Let’s be hon­est Ar­gyll & Bute Coun­cil are to­tally com­mit­ted to wast­ing money, squan­der­ing money and gen­er­ally per­form­ing poorly as a coun­cil in gen­eral ...

So­lu­tion is to cut back in all ser­vices to cover an al­ready poor man­age­ment of one of the big­gest ar­eas in Scot­land I hope they are go­ing to im­ple­ment a new Ver­min Con­trol Pol­icy start­ing at Kil­mory!’

Jean Gib­son lamented: ‘My hus­band is 70. To­day we had to taje 2 heavy bags of gar­den refuse to our near­est re­cy­cling point 40 miles away. Very heavy! My hus­band also has a colostomy mean­ing we have to dis­pose of bags in our gen­eral bin. Not hapoy that they will now be there for 3 weeks. We use our re­cy­cling bin well, com­post all kitchen waste and take our bot­tles to the li­cal bot­tle bank but 3 weeks for gen­eral bin is a health hazard@!’

Michelle Gal­lagher said: ‘ Ab­so­lute joke lucky if the bins get lifted fort nightly the past few months and that’s with my part­ner be­ing away 3 out of 6 weeks! Bins al­ways full both re­cy­cling and green bin!’

Elaine Gra­ham posted: ‘Are they for real. I wash out all that can be re­cy­cled and bin only what should be binned. And my bins are full ev­ery two weeks. I hope they are go­ing to add an­other green bin to our homes.

Kirstie Miles added: ‘3 weekly green bin col­lec­tion is never go­ing to work for peo­ple with a young fam­ily es­pe­cially ba­bies with end­less dirty nap­pies. I’ll just need to start burn­ing ev­ery­thing.’
