FOL­LOW­ING our post that bin col­lec­tion days were to re­main the same over the new year pe­riod we had a num­ber of peo­ple re­spond­ing.

Fiona Vick said: ‘Re­main the same? They haven’t even emp­tied our green bins since Tues­day 27th (when sched­uled ) been out on the road since Mon­day night ! Re­ported twice and all I got was leave the bins out !

‘ This is not the bin men’s fault ! It’s the coun­cils fault. Soroba is go­ing back to weekly col­lec­tions too, so why is ev­ery­one not go­ing back to the same!

‘Can’t treat some peo­ple dif­fer­ently than oth­ers , we all pay coun­cil tax we all should have an equal ser­vice.’

Donna M Ma­caulay sent her a

re­ply, say­ing: ‘ That’s wild eh! Should put ev­ery­one back to fort­nightly col­lec­tions, hav­ing weekly for some & wt we’ve been get­ting is out­ra­geous! I’m hav­ing to take stuff up to the dump my­self all the bloody time!’ Re­becca Cressey com­mented: ‘Not col­lected! Have not re­mained the same, have been tight­en­ing their belts to the detri­ment of the col­lec­tions, too tight to pay for bin men dur­ing hol­i­day times, al­ways fobbed off with lorry break­down, sham­bles!’ Suzy An­der­son said: ‘Point­less hav­ing a cal­en­dar when they don’t stick to it, bins are over­flow­ing.’

Peter Tay­lor added: ‘Re­main the same? What, like “One day, Some­day, Some­time, Never”?’ While Mil­lie Beuschier com­plained: ‘we have 3 bins full and rub­bish at our door step!!

Ash­ley Mck­er­ron said: ‘still wait­ing on my green bin get­ting col­lected’

Mutt Nut: ‘So our re­cy­cling bin was due to be col­lected on Dec. 29th. Still wait­ing. To­mor­row our house­hold waste bin due to be col­lected, so we will all have both bins out to­mor­row. Per­haps we should all find out how much we pay per col­lec­tion and then ask for a re­fund of our Coun­cil Tax for each failed pick up?’
