WASTE collections across the Cotswolds have resumed today after more than a week of bin bags stacking up.

There have been no collections in the district since Friday January 18 due to the wintry weather.

To make up the backlog crews will be collecting bin bags left by wheelie bins at the next scheduled collection for each area.

South Zone:

  • Monday January 28-Friday February 1: Food and garden waste only.
  • Monday February 4–Friday February 8: All waste.

North Zone:

  • Monday January 28-Friday February 1: All waste.
  • Monday February 4–Friday February 8: Food and garden waste only.

Collection zones can be seen here.

I am amazed at the incompetence of some people in not being able to realise the unhealthy / unsightly effect of uncollected rubbish coupled with the inflexible attitude to reverse the pattern for two weeks and make this week all rubbish.
I for one am not willing to bring my rubbish (sat outside in bin for over a week) back into my property or use my own time (I work full time) or fuel to deliver it to the tip - we pay council tax (one of the highest in UK) for a service that is getting worse!

Snow was gone in town almost minutes after collections were cancelled and now we all have to sit on our rubbish while they sit on their a***s

I wish someone would invent winter tyres that could be used for 5 months of the year so that vital services could carry on running........Oh er..they have.

(And before anyone gets silly, summer tyres wear much more in the cold of winter, so it saves money to use tyres that suit the temperature, as well as the condition of the road.)

Council Taxpayer says...

Don't forget that we have county council elections coming up in May and, though the district council is responsible for the refuse fiasco, you can punish senior CDC councillors who are also standing for re-election to GCC - that includes the council leader, Cllr Lynden Stowe.
If they won't listen to the voice of the people bang them over the heads with the ballot box.

Our local council is an absolute disgrace and should be ashamed!! What is it we actually pay our council tax for these days?! Total shambles to not collect rubbish. I managed to drive in the snow in my car, yet their big lorries could not collect rubbish. What a joke.

Useless.
