Bin services not up to standard

I WONDER if I am the only rate-payer who is discontented with the bin collection service?

I had my black bin emptied on December 21 and will next have the service on January 11 – i.e. three weeks between collections.

As a rural dweller, my bin collection is the main (only) service which the council provides – at a cost of almost £2,000 per year.

In Turkey (where I have a holiday home), rates are less than £2 per week and bins are emptied every day.

One wonders which is the Third World country?
