The chaos on bin emptying continued today with the Council admitting that green waste collections did not take place across large parts of Strensall, Haxby and Wigginton today.
It is the latest failure in an apparently unending saga of mistakes arising out of new bin emptying schedules.
Earlier in the week the Labour councillor responsible for the blunders (Cllr Levene) told people to “calm down”.
He told the media “Though the Council has written directly to the small number of properties that will see a significant change to their collections, there will inevitably be the odd issue to iron out when moving to a new system. We would ask residents to ensure they put their waste and recycling out before 7am on their collection days“.
Unfortunately many of the failures have been at properties where there was no planned change to the day of collection. So many did not receive a letter and the Council has effectively sought to bury the bad news deep in their web site
The failures were described as “bedding in” problems
Their web site says
Whilst the new collection rounds are settling down there will be instances when some properties are missed. We are sorry that on Thursday 12th September some properties in the following areas did not have their collection on the scheduled day:
• Rubbish collection (black bin) – None
• Garden waste (green bin):
We will return to these properties to make collections by the end of the next working day
