Peo­ple just don’t care

Sunderland Echo - - Opinion -

Af­ter read­ing the let­ters about the rub­bish bin col­lec­tion, let’s get it right.

Gen­too is re­spon­si­ble for the be­hav­iour,and clean­li­ness of their ten­ants.

I see my neigh­bours putting over filled bins out ev­ery two weeks.

When the gulls and cats scat­ter the rub­bish all over the streets and peo­ple’s gar­dens they leave it – couldn’t care less.

I’ve watched my neigh­bour drive through it and go to work and then her boyfriend walks through it and goes out. The mess is left. It’s get­ting colder and it’s ask­ing to be a mag­net for rats.

Are these peo­ple both­ered – not on your life.

I would like Gen­too to have one of its se­nior staff go around the streets and give a warn­ing to those ten­ants who do not give a damn about other peo­ple and hy­giene.

The sec­ond time should be the end, no mess­ing around, Gen­too should make an ex­am­ple.

As to prob­lems in Houghton cen­tre, there is a po­lice sta­tion 200 yards from the prob­lem area,but they are to busy fill­ing forms in than to look af­ter the streets.

There has been no po­lice pres­ence since the po­lice stopped liv­ing on the coun­cil es­tates.

Makes you won­der why you pay coun­cil tax. Richy Mackem
