Our junk monkeys still haven't got the hang of it, yesterday all the wheelie bins were dumped at the top of the road.
When we had Hemming we could complain to him and he used it against the council, now we have some Labour schoolgirl for an MP we aren't going to be heard. Her main policy is to get home and feed her kids, it used to be baked beans on supermarket toast, now it's Beluga on Artisan Boule.

well thats just typical volty....so not only are you expected to cart your wheelies to your collection point in the road but now bring them back from the other end of it..i just would not do that we cant have one rule for us and one for them...we started our wheelies 2 weeks ago and trust me i am watching the binmen like a hawk...if they do not put them back where i left them then they shall be left there and a phone call will take place whereby i shall have a deep and meaningfull conversation with the council...[Frowning]

All, I hope you get better set of bin men than we have. I have to say that if we were paying for their services privately they'd have been sacked by now. The infuriating thing is, there are no problems with the recycling collections.

I really hope this service works for you!

im not holding my breath cleo...another thing has struck me...its easy enough to forget to put the bins out on the odd time..we have done it before now with the bags but before it didnt really matter as we just put out double rubbish the next week...with the wheelies which only hold 3 black bags and we can only just manage on 3 if we forget one week there is no way we can get 6 bags in a bin..im nervous wreck now in case we forget

How come your bins only hold three black bags?. What I do as I put a bag in the bin i put some finger holes in it an push it down, it's surprising how much air comes out an I get one or two extra bags in it.

Not so long ago saw a man by us,climb a step ladder and jump on his bag's in the bin, to try to get a bit more in, bit dangerous if he jumped on a bottle or such like.
