I have been contacted by residents from many parts of our area – including Airyhall, Braeside, Broomhill and Ruthrieston – about problems with wheelie bins not being emptied on schedule over the Christmas and New Year.
There seem to have been particular problems with the brown wheelie bin collections which had been rescheduled from Christmas Day to Saturday 23rd December not being emptied.
I contacted council staff about each of the problems highlighted to me by residents – and urged that the unemptied wheelie bins were emptied as soon as possible.
The council has now announced that wheelie bins which should have been emptied on 23rd and 26th December will now be emptied this week.
The council changed wheelie bin collection arrangements in spring 2017. It is unacceptable that there are still major problems with wheelie bin collections months after those changes. This shambles must be sorted out without any further delay. Residents should be able to rely on having their wheelie bins emptied by the council on the day they are supposed to be emptied.4 Comments
