Twin Wheely Bin System (2015)

I'm moving to a flat in Preston soon, and the flat doesn't have the Twin Bin System, but all the other flats do... So i contacted Torbay Council Recycle team to ask for the Twin Bin System to be delivered - That's what we pay Council Tax for right?

Well the woman on the phone (after being cut off once), was kind of helpful, but said they didn't do the Twin Bin System where the flat was, i quizzed this, as all the other flats have the bins, she said that all the other flat occupants had brought the bins (as it said on their computers), i said, 'Really... All of the flats bought the bins?' she replied 'Yes'.

I Said, Okay, but i really think you should check again, as i really think your system is wrong, she goes, no system is right, we can provide you with the bags like the other households do, if they don't have the bins, i then said, all the houses have the Twin Bin Systems, she insisted they didn't, and they had brought them, i told her to come over here and have a look for herself, she then went away and clarified with her supervisor, who said the same as her.

I Said, well they Twin Bin Systems are collected on the Friday Mornings, and this week would be the green bin, she goes no, its the bags, i said she really should come over and have a look for herself.

She then put me on hold AGAIN, (even thought I've not mentioned above!), and she then said the driver for Preston had turned up in the office, and heaven behold, i was correct and she was wrong, they do the bins in Preston where i am going to live, and she apologised, and said they will order the bins to me, but it will take minimum of 3 weeks... 3 WEEKS!!!

How does it take 3 weeks to make, and deliver a bin?
C'mon, what do we pay our tax for... Oh yeah...for the mayor to fuck up Torbay!!

So i predict that Torbay Council might just be able to make and deliver a bin in week by 2015 - But i'm not getting my hopes up!

Dump it in the street then its their problem. I had a similar annoyance some time back when some reprobate left a complete bed, including matress and sheets in a lane outside my house.Council said very sorry its on your property cant do anything.I rang back 5 mins later after a bit of pushing and shoving and said theres a bed in the middle of the road you'd better send someone round to collect it.Job done, feet up.

if you only wait 3 weeks then lucky you. i waited almost 6 months for a green bin to be delivered and this was after having to ring up every week, although my husband went to the council tax office to use their phones to do this.

I've just sent an e-mail off, let's see what he thinks!
Maybe things will start to change! (Again, not getting my hopes up!) and Nick Bye won't even read it, he will just get his admin staff to!

I reckon it will be 2015 and not three weeks Lee, but here's hoping. Why not click the email link at the bottom of the post and send it to the mayor see what his reply is?

I can understand just how frustrated you must have bin! Glad you stood your ground and didn't end up paying for one, thats a really bad mistake for them to make, but oh so typical.
