Yep, that's what mine says too. My current day is Friday, so will they or won't they collect refuse tomorrow (Friday 5th)??


Our "normal" collection should have been today.....bag still waiting, so who knows?. There is an article in the times regarding the amount of telephone calls, 3500 calls as opposed to the usual 500 (from all areas)....that tells me the information is misleading.

It's not misleading, it's plain wrong.

It clearly states on the black bins that refuse collections will continue as normal until the 12th November.

It's not the 12th yet, so there should have been refuse collections this week.

On the black bin, it says that the first collection of the black bin is 12th December. As the non-recycleable waste is now on a 2 week collection, last Friday was our last day for the blue bin bags. I put a tesco bag of clutter into the black bin ready for next week.

It's all on the sheet that was sent out with what is being collected each Friday. Tomorrow is Green & Blue bins for me.

I hear there are a few new jobs on offer at the Council Offices......

Rat Catchers wanted! lol

The phone hung up the first time I rang this afternoon after the long message thingy.

Second time I rang, it lifted and went straight down, so not much help there then. I can suggest some cost cutting !

Oh my god, you people really need to get a life. And also read your instructions properly. Yes the black bin states first collection is 12th November. However, the leaflet clearly states that you will have a Green Bin and a Blue bin collection on 5th November ie food waste, garden waste and paper. It is as plain as day if you take the time to actually read what they have given you.

My 85 year old grandmother understood it so not sure why other people can't.


Is your idea of getting a life studying council leaflets then ?
Carry on as normal till the 12th! It didn't say there won't be a normal collection on the 2nd though did it clever clogs


No not clever, just interested enought to take 5 minutes to read what the council sent us.

It is all fairly straight forward as long as you ignore the sticker on the black bins!

The sticker did say that the first collection of the black bin is on the 12th and to carry on as normal till then! Which is misleading and contradicts what the leaflet says!

I have to wonder how long before they have to start collecting weekly again, our black bin is almost full already! And i bet were not alone on this!

I dont live on Vale Close, we have a communal dump on Overton Cres as well.... I was lucky enough not to have bought the house where we all dumped our bin bags, Ive lived there for 22 years and weve always done it. What I cant beleive is that this morning we saw a neighbour actually go out and add another bag to the heap instead of using the black wheelie bin?!?!?!?
How hilarious if I get back from work and they havent been to empty the blue and green Ive left out!
It will become apparant though when I drive up the road and see theyve been left in the middle of my drive again!!!!

The thing about the new black bins is... we will be able to squash it down to fit more in unlike the 'bags' ...

I don't have any of the blue bin liners left.

So, am i able to use a normal black binliner for the new black bin?

I'm assuming so, as everything that goes into the black bin is non-recyclable anyway.

Also, why is everyone talking about putting it out today when it states on the website, the sheet that i've got and on the sticker on the bin itself that the first collection is the 12th November?
