We had our Recycling and household collected today all in the same truck. Had collections for three weeks now.
Strike what strike.
All we want now is to see the back of this bloody Council.

We had a chance at the election to get a new council. Probably wouldn't help, there are loads of managers cocking things up in every department, it probably isn't councillor policy to wreck council services, they are too busy trying to wreck the city.

So blame the losers who elected this Council. It certainly wasn't me.

Ours was also a three week wait.
If they had turned up on our normal collection day then some of the people harbouring bags of rubbish in their own back gardens, instead of on the street, would have put them out.
Instead we got a 7am visit a day earlier than expected and no chance for fetching and hidden rubbish, consequently some bins went back out full within hours of being emptied.



which is exactly why i didnt stash any bags out the back they all went out the front next to my already full bin and stayed there until collected..you cant expect a collection on your normal day at the min so keep the excess bags out the front...

I didn't have any excess, it all went in the bin, [This is Rubbish] with a little bit of help. It doesn't come out easily though.
We should get a collection tomorrow

I can get about five bags in if I am forceful enough.
Still awaiting our collection.

According to The Birmingham Mail the bin strike could be back on by next week. Even if it isn't we are quite unlikely to see better than collections every two weeks.

Thank you to our Council.
Now the country knows our city is a pile of rubbish.

This isn't a strike it's a work to rule. If there is a valid reason, which this one arguably has and the workforce democratically vote for a strike, as an ex union officer I can back that. It means that the union members are prepared to accept a degree of hardship to persue their cause. As these weak kneed yobs are working most of their hours and presumably getting most of their pay the only people suffering is the public, the people are paying 100% of the cash they are being payed.
Also if they are only missing 2or 3 hours a day how come the collections are not just late instead of in some areas they are totally missing.
Thankfully our wonderful neighbour from across the road has taken our Household rubbish from across to the tip for us as he knows we don't have a car. What a Saint.
So even with my Union Background I have no sympathy with this shower whatsoever.


What Strike?

The last episode was a work to rule, officially that is what this is too. In reality I think this one will be a free for all. I also don't think the Binmen will stop now until they get rid of Clancy.

Clancy was a 60s comedy series family who experienced comic capers. What's that got to do with Birmingham Council?
Ha Ha, just testing.

Our collection was this morning. I won't be putting the bins out again until February, that will put the council in breach of EU recycling regulations.
