The wirral.gov website doesn't tell us much either.

'There have been some issues in collecting green and grey bins last week. It is planned that locations where collections have been missed will be revisited.

If your bin has not been emptied, please take your bin in and put it out again by 7am.

Please help the crews to complete their collections by putting your rubbish correctly at the kerbside, wheelie bin wheels facing the road, lid down and no side waste, and parking considerately to make sure that the vehicles can access the road.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.'

It looks like everyone will be leaving their bins out and just hoping.

It is clear that in many cases bins are not getting emptied if the lids are not closed, walking around I see bins still not emptied which are overflowing when others in the same road have obviously been cleared This is part of the work to rule that was going on last week .

Last Monday our greybins were not emptied, but they eventually did them late on Tuesday afternoon. With the green bin today, they were emptied first thing this am. So back to normal. atm.

Could you explain why they are "snowflake workers" a rather strange thing to say.

That's the trouble with repeatedly putting contracts up for grabs, its a race to the bottom price which means the service suffers - quickest and cheapest, creating strict work-to-rule.

In turn its the Government both insisting on Councils putting things out to competitive contract and reducing Council funding that creates this mess.

The Government spends (and borrows) far more money than ever before but that money doesn't head in the general public's direction.

Did you ever see the 90s BBC comedy drama "Common As Muck" - this covered that subject brilliantly.

Yes CCT the downfall of our services, the cheap and nasty, companies underbidding then struggling to full fill the contract, Thatchers demons CCT deregulation,privatisation, although some believe its all down to the binmen being snowflakes.

Yes, I remember that, looking at some episodes now I see them in completely different light/perspective than twenty six years ago. For some reason I remember the office scenes much more than the street scenes.

Most if not all episodes from both seasons are on youtube
