Bin not emptied again (3 weeks now).

Reported via Android in the Rubbish (refuse and recycling) category anonymously at 13:31, Monday 12 April 2021

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

The bin men,who empty the regular bins, have just been here 3 mins ago and once again the recycle bin,that has been marked as not recyclable,has not been emptied. When are they going to do it,or have they decided it is not going to get done. You have had multiple reports now about this and someone else on the estate is reporting the same problems. Now the question has to be Why?????

  • 14/04/2021: Hi Greenwich Council, this recycling bin has still not been emptied today. Because it's completely full, people are now leaving bags on the ground around the bin. There is also a mattress dumped behind the recycling bins today by a fly-tipper. Can you please empty the recycling bin -- there is no point in just leaving it to pile up, as people will only put more bags on the ground around the bins instead, if you do that. You will encourage rats and vermin if you don't empty the bins when they are full -- this is a regular occurrence here. Please sort this out today, Greenwich Council. Don't leave it to pile up even more. Many thanks. (14/04/2021.)
