Rubbish service

WHAT on earth is our new Lib Dem/ Lab council up to regarding rubbish collection?

WHAT on earth is our new Lib Dem/ Lab council up to regarding rubbish collection?

As our letters pages reveal, the system appears to be in total chaos.

Only last week, just after the ‘no black plastic bags’ order came down from on high, some residents in Hockley Heath for example discovered that that also applied to the pink bags the council had actually provided for them to put their rubbish in.

Either the refuse collectors are colour blind, or the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.

Scenes such as this appear to be being replicated across the borough, and now the lids on wheelie bins have to be shut flat too.

Rubbish collection is absolutely fundamental for the council tax payers of this land. Other local authorities appear to get it right yet in Solihull it would seem that for some reason, they can’t.

Refuse collectors in Warwickshire happily collect wheelie bins with items poking out of them.

They’ll also pick up the odd bin bag (of whatever colour) left lying nearby.

Why can’t Solihull do the same? Residents deserve, pay for and should get a better service.
