PILES of rubbish have been seen at a major supermarket as bins across the city continue to go uncollected.

Mounds of household waste were pictured in the Asda Hollingbury car park in Brighton as the sixth day of bins strikes continue.

Pictures taken from the popular supermarket on Sunday show the scale of the crisis, with dozens of bin bags dumped by the commercial bins.

Empty beer bottles and glass jars were also snapped by the bins which have been sectioned off with fences and cones.

One shopper who snapped the picture said the rotten waste could create a "health hazard" for shoppers entering and leaving the store.

They said: "I've just arrived back in Brighton after a short trip away and I couldn't believe the mound of rubbish that was littering the car park.

"Bin bags seemed to pile as high as the fence.

"It can't be hygienic, it could cause a health hazard."

It comes as Brighton’s Cityclean, recycling, commercial waste and HGV drivers strike for two-weeks amid a row over pay and working conditions.

On Monday, Brighton and Hove City Council met those behind the walk out, but confirmed that strike action by refuse collectors would still take place.

Fast forward to Friday, the GMB union met with Green Party councillors again to discuss the ongoing dispute.

Deputy leader of the council and Green Party councillor for Brunswick and Adelaide Hannah Clare said the meeting was “productive” and another meeting has been agreed for next week.

“It is positive to be working together on a way forward,” she said. “We have agreed to meet again early next week.

Today, Brighton and Hove City Council made an offer to the union including additional pay, but claim that union representatives "walked out of the room before discussing this offer" with the council.

Should the union and the council fail to reach an agreement, residents could face four week's worth of rubbish building up on Brighton and Hove's streets.

An Asda spokesman said: “We have bins at our Hollingbury store to provide our customers with a quick and easy way to dispose of their rubbish and recycling. Due to the recent local strike the bins have not been collected as normal, but we are working on removing the rubbish this evening and we thank our customers for their understanding.”
