New bin collection dates===
Started by: Anne (3236)  Report abuse
My new bin calendar has arrived, still the same until 19th September. It says NEW calendar will arrive in September. Can't wait for it!

Apparently they sent our bin calendars out, black bin calendar comes in a fortnight and the blue and brown three weeks after that!

We all know the collection days for our bins at the present time why has a team of people been employed to give us new calendars till SeptemberWhy did the council not wait until they have sorted the new bin days out(led to believe day may change), Then issue up to-date calendars then.We has ratepayers are now paying TWICE not only for the delivery but also the printing etc

WWC for you, Wigan Wasteful Council

Wigan council waste money again by posting out to every household a booklet about recycling and telling us our bins will be on a 3 week cycle plus Green bin stopping on a 2 week cycle. This will start after the 25th Sept but they have not enclosed a leaflet telling what day/date our bins will be emptied(some routes are being changed) So sometime in the next few weeks either the postman or leaflet distributors will be posting yet another leaflet at our expense to our premises telling WHEN our bins will be emptied

I wonder if smiffy will have to wait 3 weeks to have his black bin emptied when it gets a bit full and smelly?

Mine was behind the door when I got home from work yesterday. It shows the days that they will walk past our bins randomly, (they emptied the blue bin but not the black bin last Wednesday). A programme of disappointment!

Once they go onto 3 weekly bin days god help any one who is on holiday, that weeks bin/s will only get emptied at 6 weeksNot every one has neighbours/family to put the bins out for them whilst they are away

PeterP, It wouldn't be so bad if we were on holiday but, as I have said in the past, our bin is put out in the correct place and on time. If, as they did last week, they don't empty your bin they won't come around to empty it until the next collection day.

We do try to recycle wherever possible but our black bin is usually full after two weeks.Are they sacking any bin men?
