THE CITY COUNCIL’S EFFORTS to persuade residents that they are coping with the rubbish collections will cut little ice in Castle Vale, where mounds of uncollected black bin liners still line many of the roads.
The Council has issued a further set of statistics:
- 1,002 tonnes of black bag rubbish collected from the streets of the city yesterday.
- A 42% increase on the volume of black bag rubbish that would be collected on a typical Wednesday (707 tonnes).
- For the fortnight beginning 20th December 2010, 1309 tonnes of waste was deposited at the city’s HRC (Household Recycling Centres) – this compares to 1,054 tonnes in 2009-10 – an increase of 24%.
They maintain that they will have cleared the backlog by Sunday.
