  • Rubbish bags piled on waste bins
    Article: May 20, 2021
    In Email to Cabinet Member for Waste and Officers

    I know this is part of a regular series of emails from me, but there are a lot of things not well in the world of bin emptying and rubbish collection in Sandgate at the moment I'm afraid.

    The seafront is currently regularly getting strewn with rubbish *again*, and although I have local residents crying out for bigger bins. The issue is that AGAIN they are being emptied too infrequently, and AGAIN the system seems to have reverted to someone who empties and leaves the bags on or by the bin, and then some hours later, sometimes the next day, the bags are being collected.
