It now seems as though the Labour-controlled Vale of Glamorgan Council has introduced a new skill-requirement for its hard-working band of binmen – time travel.
With a Bank Holiday coming up on Monday it’s time once again for local council-tax-payers to play the all-too-regular guessing game as to when the Vale of Glamorgan Council refuse lorries will come to call.
PDN reader John Constable went to that authoritative and impeachable source of reference – the Vale of Glamorgan Council website – to find out, …and found this.
It’s a handy calendar setting out on which day rubbish would normally be collected – and on which day the Vale bin men , taking account of the Bank Holiday, are scheduled to actually come to collect.
However it now seems Vale Council staff are now invested with time-travelling powers rivalled only by Doctor Who.
Rubbish which wouldn’t normally be put out for collection until May 31st – will be mysteriously collected on May 1st.
Saturday May 4th was actually a Wednesday – not Saturday – or at least is was in Penarth, if not in Barry. …As for the rest of the timetable is concerned – it probably needs a Doctor Who to make sense of it all.
