Five months of bin misery as eight Brighton and Hove refuse trucks out of action

The Argus: Five months of bin misery as eight Brighton and Hove refuse trucks out of action Five months of bin misery as eight Brighton and Hove refuse trucks out of action

Five months of bin misery and more to come. That is the claim from residents despite the council stating that workers are catching up with bin collections.

Brighton and Hove City Council has announced that eight of its bin lorries were out of action earlier this week and householders have been left aghast at claims that bin collections are nowonly
days behind.

They say that over the past five months they have suffered infrequent or nonexistent collections but the council expects to be back on schedule by the end of the weekend.

Ray Farrow, 65, of St Aubyns said: “They must have got their calendar wrong around here then. Since December our bins have not been collected unless we actually call them up and remind
them.

“Trying to get Cityclean to come up with a solution is like climbing a mountain. We had
to keep bullying them to get our rubbish collected.”

Mr Farrow said the communal recycling bins in St Aubyns were yesterday emptied for the first time in six weeks. John Pope, 74, who lives in Shaftesbury Place, added: “It’s getting worse rather than better.“

I am tempted to take my bins right up to the front door of Cityclean. Our streets look like a complete tip.

“Is it part of the refuse collection service to have the herring gulls come and rip the bags apart?”

The council reported that having the eight refuse collection vehicles out of commission at the start of the week has caused delays in Hangelton, Mile Oak, Hove, south Moulsecoomb and Whitehawk.

The city council has a total of 45 vehicles in the fleet. Geoff Raw, executive director for environment, development and housing, said: “We are making major changes to refuse and recycling collection services to improve the efficiency of the collections and to provide more opportunities for residents to recycle.

"As the changes take effect we are experiencing some disruption to services and this is being further affected by vehicle breakdowns. This is affecting communal recycling collections as well as others.

“The council’s refuse and recycling teams are working hard to catch up with missed collections and we apologise to residents experiencing problems.”

The council nowreports that six of the eight vehicles have been repaired and crews are working late concentrating on picking up outstanding refuse.

But the GMB union says the problems go much deeper. Mark Turner, Brighton and Hove GMB branch secretary, said: “The vehicles off the road and the ageing fleet is not the crux of the issue. In October five vehicles were taken off the road as part of the new round, and now the workforce is underequipped and there is just too much for them. This is a management issue, not a workforce one.”

The council has recently purchased new vehicles, with the first two due to be delivered in July and another 11 between September and October.

Each vehicle costs between £150,000 and £185,000. Councillor Andrew Wealls, of the Central Hove ward, said: “It is clear that either collections are not frequent enough, or facilities are insufficient.”

“Please can the council get a grip, respond to residents when they complain and sort out this
mess? We have had enough.”

The so-called Green One Planet City that can't even collect its own rubbish nor re-cycle its waste!

Chaos Kitcat and the Luddite Lucas are the laughing stock of the country and the international environmental movement.

Surely they can now see it is time for them to pack up, go home and go back to whatever they were doing before they were inflicted on us.

Please leave us to get on with grown-up politics.
Roll on 2015.

No Bluenose @7.58 the problem is that the implications and consequences of communal bins were not thought through by the Council.

These bins are now used by i) local retail premises (why pay for a commercial contract any more?) ii) builders working in the neighbourhood (why bother with a skip anymore?) iii) The local Green-voting transient population who want to dump their matresses and bed frames and tell us they are 'recycling'.

Hence the bins fill up and are surrounded by fly-tipping.
Our Green council have created modern-day middens all over our city.

Indeed Bluenose you are right - people are the problem. But anyone other than this dimwitted Green Party bunch of buffoons would have realised that you allow for people being the problem when you legislate and introduce communal bins all over our city. That's what a grown-up council would do.

You are right about the large black communal rubbish bines being collected regularly. The original black boxes were supposed to be collected on a weekly bases and this system failed towards the end of 2013. The new roadside recycling bins were installed and NOT emptied, if as you say they were then the residents of St Aubyns must be alcoholics seeing the amount of empty bottles in and around the bin. I live in the area and all of the new recycling bins were full to overflowing.

I also agree that people seem to think they can dump sofas, mattresses, televisions and other household items by the bins. This is totally unacceptable and if caught they should receive a hefty fine.

The only other thing I would say about bluenose comments is the language used, which is also totally unacceptable and verging on Deformation of Character which is offence.

The original black boxes were supposed to be collected on a weekly bases and this system failed towards the end of 2013. The new roadside recycling bins were installed and NOT emptied, if as you say they were then the residents of St Aubyns must be alcoholics seeing the amount of empty bottles in and around the bin. I live in the area and all of the new recycling bins were full to overflowing. I also agree that people seem to think they can dump sofas, mattresses, televisions and other household items by the bins. This is totally unacceptable and if caught they should receive a hefty fine. The only other thing I would say about bluenose comments is the language used, which is also totally unacceptable and verging on Deformation of Character which is offence.

... and yet there appears £30M for the i360 as if by magic. You will notice they can always find money for things they really want. Obviously they don't really want to collect the rubbish.

I do not buy Cityclean and the Green Council's assurances that it's all in the name of efficiency. They have completely lost credibility as far as I am concerned. I will believe my rubbish is being collected when I see the bin being physically tipped into the truck.

HJ Says that Brighton people should be thankful for what they have.

Soon the Gyratory and i360 projects will bring complete gridlock to the city and refuse vans will struggle to complete 50% of today's levels.

Taxpaying mugs will pay the ultimate price.
