I got bitten by this palaver; the email about the delay came, I brought my bin back in on Monday night, went to get my hair cut Tuesday morning and found on return that the binnies had been round! I rang Streetscene and was told to put it out again and it'd be collected on Wednesday. It wasn't. I reported it using the online form at the end of Wednesday. Still waiting for it to be emptied. I don't think I'm the only one to have been messed about this week!
I'm not carting my rubbish to the tip; we've already been made to pay for garden waste collections. I've no intention of using my ever-more-expensive petrol to remove household rubbish, when the Council should arrange it. Fortunately it's all bagged and it's winter, so whiffiness is not a problem.
