Penarth residents have continued to cite further examples of uncollected rubbish around the town following the change in the designated collection days which came into effect on August 1st.
On Friday August 6th PDN reported that scores of local residents had not had refuse collected. (See PDN http://tinyurl.com/zyy3h65)
In some cases rubbish had not been collected, not because it was put out on the “wrong day” (most residents appeared to have seen the council’s circular letter and complied with it), but apparently because it was “the wrong kind of rubbish”
Many residents had failed to notice that the introduction of the council’s new schedule had postponed “black bag day” for a week – leaving bags full of “landfill” refuse, like soiled babies nappies, uncollected.
In other cases other classes of rubbish which were due to be collected had not been picked up.
PDN contributor Kevin O’Sullik has provided photographs taken yesterday of some of the detritus still awaiting collection in various parts of the town. He says “A stroll around Penarth town centre on a Saturday afternoon, full of shoppers, alfresco diners and tourists. Sadly the town is not looking its best with piles of recycling left by every bin and black bags torn open.”
Mr O’Sullik asks “Why has the recycling not been collected? ” and, citing the example of Roxborough Court on Plymouth Road (top of the item) says “If you know of any councillors who live here can you ask them why?”
