Council not emptying bins

This is a problem that happens too often. Our recycle bins have been contaminated by food waste from walkers by and people pulling up in cars. Our bins have not been emptied 'again', either by the recycle team or the normal bin team. They have been ignored by both teams for four'4' weeks now, even though the bin teams have to pull up in exactly the same place location. This has happened because of laxity, no-one can be bothered as it might take an extra 2 minutes to empty them. Again, SHAME on Greenwich Council.
