As a result of the sad loss of a long standing and well respected member of the waste and recycling collection crew, there will be no waste or recycling collections on 19th November. This is to allow staff to attend the funeral.

Recycling and Waste Collections will be made a day in hand as follows:

Marvellous tribute


Horrible person you don’t know the circumstances
He was a lovely lad loved by many


What a horrible person u t


What a stupid comment. Let’s hope you don’t have to take a day off work due to a bereavement. I couldn’t care less if they have to be paid extra to work the Saturday, or if the collection wasn’t until the following week. It’s extenuating circumstances so get off your high horse. If you’re that bothered about waiting an extra day, take your own rubbish to the tip. Rest in peace to the deceased and lots of love to his family and friends who are suffering at the moment.

You’re an idiot.

none given

Ms Amey – your comments are being treated with the contempt that they so richly deserve.

The reason that this public service can do this on the odd occasion, is because it is not critical to life or the safety of human beings, that your used bean cans, newspapers, food waste and other refuse is collected.

Work it out will you.


Let’s hope no one goes to your useless funeral!

Don’t care

Heartless cow.


Absolutely disgusting disrespectful comment MS AMEY (not your name obviously) shame on you what a horrible person you are! Take it your an “I AM” person finger clicking now now now self centred it’s all about you and you only very selfish….

RIP to the person who passed away thoughts are with his family and work colleagues.


What a nasty heartless bitch

Andrea Garvey

You are a stupid person. Can you not have some empathy for the person who has sadly passed away and allow this persons colleagues to say goodbye. I day late collecting your rubbish is not life threatening.


Disgusting comment how heartless.


Disgusting attitude you have there. Well done to the company for allowing ALL the staff to attend.


Ms amey what a horrible bastard you are let’s hope no one dies close to you in these services but I suppose your well above the likes of the working class!


What a vile human you are. Have some respect for his loved ones. I’m sure one day isn’t going to hurt out of the whole bloody year. You don’t know the circumstances so keep your nasty opinions to yourself. Think about his loved ones who have to read your negative post. Last thing they need. Sending love to the family & friends. RIP. You was so very loved


Have some thought for the family they have lost there loved one
You are a sad person get a life bloody more to life than complaining about ur bin
