Recycling hopes more like dreams?

I WAS amused to read that the council is going to collect as usual throughout the Christmas period – they are clearly dreaming!

In New Road in Eastbourne the last dustbin collection was more than two weeks ago (November 25).

The last recycling collection was even further back, over three weeks ago (November 18).

I know we had some snow but it did not last that long!

The recycling collections only take place on time about 50 per cent of the time and numerous phone calls and emails have to be made to engender some action.

Our street is currently full of overflowing recycle bins, overflowing wheelie bins and loose bins bags - excellent only if you are a fox!
