Well, let’s hope so. I’ve been getting increasingly fed up with the disgusting state of the street (Gaynesford Road, Church Rise) with litter and bins left out. So I wrote to environmental services with photos. This is the reply
Many thanks for coming back so quickly and with the photos, which are very helpful. I am hoping that we will be able to resolve these issues quite quickly. I have asked the Senior Waste Manager to speak to the crews who collect from these roads and remind them that they should be sweeping up any spillages on collection day. The crews should also be returning the bins to the appropriate residents boundary after collection without causing an obstruction.
** If you are able to provide me with the numbers of the houses that seem to be leaving their bins on the pavement, I can arrange for a letter to be sent to those residents, if no improvement is seen within a few weeks we can send another, more strongly worded letter (but we find this is often not necessary).**
I’m going to follow up with house numbers as best I can (and hope I don’t get my car keyed) because, inconsiderate neighbours, you need to have a word with yourselves, and incompetent council, so do you.
I’m now mad as hell!
