Its West Devon Borough Council you need to call. The Recycling Kings and lets build everywhere Kings. Call it affordable housing, social housing and make money for the Social landlords and Builders with Public Money. Even the Offices look like a giant recycling box with windows.
I've lived in West Devon for over 30 years and been happy with waste/recycling collection until recently. Smaller pick up trucks =less rubbish being collected. Bags left to blow around the roads and green boxes left to fill with rain water. At times the rubbish collection does not happen at all.
So fed up I'm thinking of just tipping recycling into the box without sorting it. Petty? Yes, but it seems to be the only way to protest. And yes I've contacted WDBC several times.
WDBC and refuse/recycling? One word springs to mind...rubbish! The woman who deal with your complaint are ignorant and cold, and haven't a clue what the rubbish men are really doing! They seem to think it is perfectly fine if you can't get your bins out by 7.30am and miss the refuse collectors because they manage to do it! Hmmm...yes, more like their husbands/relatives do it and they certainly wouldn't if they did shift work. It's okay, hopefully James Herbert's Rats will arrive soon and kill us all!
