Yet again the rubbish piles up on Ridgegrove

Another week - another unacceptable pile of rubbish at the Ridgegrove Estate collection points.

The photo on the left shows the state of the top area this morning before the scheduled collection was made. The bins are full and rubbish is spilling out onto the pathway and into the street.

Why is this happening? Principally, because although Cory collect twice a week, they insist that Wednesday and Friday are the only days they can do so. The bins are, at most, half full on a Friday and by Wednesday are over-flowing in the way shown.

I have asked the Council to work with Cory as a matter of urgency either to introduce a third collection or, at the very least, to re-time the current collections to make them more even.

I've also asked the Council to take action with Cory about the fly-tipped fridge and other material which is still there more than ten days after they were first reported.
