    Drove through Page Hall the other day Upwell street area. It is absolutely disgusting! You have to see it to believe it. Loads of  people wandering around with nothing to do.

     Why can’t they start working by picking the litter up and refrain from dumping their sofas and unwanted household goods on the public byway?

    I was doing some jobs there a few months back and actually witnessed someone in two different houses emptying a bin out of an upstairs window onto the pavement. Couldn't believe what I was seeing!

    It does seem that way, but what if by emptying this extra bin they’re then unable to empty one that IS on their list?


    Have you reported the overflowing bin?


    Oh come on it's hardly likely is it, one extra bin bag in the wagon.


    In any case I strongly suspect they were fobbing me off as I cannot see the logic, even by SCC's standards, of having a list of bins to empty in an area except for one. No more likely they took umbrage with a member of the public pointing it out to them, or just couldn't be bothered. They empty the bins on the main road every day but this one is set back and is often left for weeks overflowing. A neighbour is reporting it all the time, but it still gets left.

    Sounds like they are doing what they have been asked to do.

    Too literally without any using any initiative.


    If they've genuinely been told to ignore bins that need emptying but aren't on their "list", then that's ridiculous management.

  4. I've noticed more and more street bin full to brim and overflowing. There's one near my house that hadn't been emptied for weeks despite seeing the wagon most nights emptying others nearby. One night when I saw them I went out to tell them about it, they just said it wasn't on their list.


    Not on their list........ it's full!! Couldn't be bothered arguing and walked off, how can you argue with someone who has that logic. Talk about bone idle!

  5. If it's the Rivelin Dams you're on about then you're not actually allowed to swim in them, they belong to Yorkshire Water. It's also incredibly dangerous, water is drawn off from below and there can be strong undercurrents.


    They put fencing up last year on the wall near the main road, presumably to deter swimmers. I remember just the week before the number of cars parked up on the verge was ridiculous, it was during the warm spell last spring, although having said that the car park across the damn had been closed by YW.
