Bins will not be collected on Thursday

OVERFLOWING bins could be on the cards for some residents in Warrington after the council confirmed that bins will not be collected on Thursday.

Bin collection services will grind to a halt in the town as thousands of workers stage a mass walkout following a series of bitter disputes with the Government over pay, pensions and workloads.

Firefighters from the Fire Brigades Union, civil servants in the Public and Commercial Services union, council and school support workers in the GMB and Unison, and members of the National Union of Teachers have already confirmed they will be taking part in the strike, which is poised to be the biggest co-ordinated public-sector strike in years. 

In a statement, a council spokesman said: “If your bin is due to be collected on Thursday, July 10, it will not be collected.

“Black bin collections due on Thursday, July 10, will take place from Tuesday, July 15, and each subsequent day thereafter until all collections are completed.

“Residents should place their black bin at the normal collection point from 6.30am.

“The council will make arrangements for the black bin to be collected as soon as possible from Tuesday 15 July.

“Recycling collections of blue and green bins on Thursday 10 July will be suspended until the next scheduled collection of Thursday 24 July.”

So leave your bins out for a couple of days on the off chance they will be collected, can see the streets littered with rubbish as the idiots who think it's funny to tip bins over cause havoc, which in turn will bring rats, foxes etc in to eat on rotting food, just wonder what do we actually pay council tax for?

We don't pay council tax to take our own waste to the recycling centre so the bin men will be taking bin bags from off the pavement if the bins are that overflowing and if they don't they will be dumped in the nearest council field so they can clean it up that way. All the time council tax keeps going up in price why the service gets less and less.

The austerity measures are largely due to 13 disastrous years of Labour govt ,who's outgoing treasury secretary left a note for the new one saying "Sorry there's no money left " As usual a conservative govt has to clean up the mess of labour profligate spending.

The council have known about this date and plans and done nothing , they could have used another outsource for one day to avoid environmental issues, they don't have any issues planning around increasing yearly council tax, basically we have or are paying for a service that's not going to be delivered! So WBC should be crediting everyone for loss of this service! If everyone feels the same, leave your filled black bin bags outside the golden gates!

I should have seen this coming lazy and greedy council worker’s demanding more money. It’s an annual event now in fact they should have a party for the annual strike day. If you are a bin man and are unhappy with your current salary why not get a better paid easier job??………. oh wait you’re a bin man and have therefor failed in life. On a serious note will this strike really achieve the frankly preposterous demands from union chiefs? I think not. Will it encourage the community to get behind the council services and support their cause??? Ha ha judging from the comments on here next week the bin men will have to wear full riot gear.

So they go on strike then will most probably get overtime to clear the back log :( well that makes sense!!! Oh and thanks for telling us the recycling centres are open ..... Just so we can make there job even easier by getting rid of it for them....lazy b's! Council charges are high enough without us making it easy for them, would they be sympathetic if we went on strike and refused to pay for poor service.....I don't think so!!!! Plenty of people out there to do the job if they don't want to do it.

Itme, you are absolutely spot on.
The Labour government bled the country dry. This went unnoticed by the people, they were too busy spending money they didn't have.
It was only a matter of time until we couldn't sustain current spending, and the financial black hole would have to be tackled.
In my opinion, we are on the slow road to recovery.

I bet they wouldn't dare strike if they were private sector workers, and their conditions would be a whole pile worse as well. Given that the Social are funding people to be on the dole, why don't they lend some to the council for the day to do jobs they could do (like empty bins) on the day that the trade union militants are downing tools. What we should do is to make a freedom of information request to the council as to who was supposed to be delivering the services which aren't being delivered and whether they're not delivering the service because they're on strike. This will give us the sense at least that individuals are personally accountable for the service that they choose not to deliver.

It's firefighters, civil servants, council & school support workers and teachers that have all voted to strike - NOT just bin men. No need to have a go at just them. Yes it's an inconvenience but so is having to take the day off work to look after your child when they should be in school. So is having your house on fire with nobody to put it out! Bit more serious than nobody emptying your bin!
And as for your comments MRWOLF - "I should have seen this coming lazy and greedy council worker’s demanding more money..... you’re a bin man and have therefore failed in life" - I don't know what makes you the think that you have the right to judge the success or failure of any individual. Perhaps the mask of anonomity makes you feel superior? Sad.

As "managers" of the Council Services, can the managers say if they support the strikes?
Can they say what contingency plans they made to ensure their customers aren't inconvenienced any more than absolutely necessary.
Wonder how many senior managers are on strike. Or do they just take the benefit that the rank and file fight for?

Unfortunately I don't know the details of financial issues involved, but I do support the fact that all pigs are equal.

it cant be the bin men who have decided to strike. They don't work a full day, don't work a full week, don't move a bin if the lids open half an inch, dont believe in Wheeling a bin more than four feet and get paid a fortune for it.

for the guy that said a bin man has failed in life he's on more than you and doing less for it......... you never seen bin men jobs advertised anywhere do you....???

anyway people who jobs are part or wholly funded by council tax payments should not be allowed to strike it should be that simple. you are guaranteed an income stream from the public, unlike in private sector work where people have to work to generate income. So if you want that secure lifestyle forgo strike action you living in the 1970's layabouts.......

No bankers prosecuted. Spineless government bowing to their rich friends. If the Torys are so frugal, why did they sell student debt to their mates for 5p in the pound? Corrupt!

We should PROTEST! We take this lying down. Grab your bins and pour them all over the roads. They would soon move it. The problem is with us we all moan and we take no action! Like our parks, they havent cut the grass properly on the park near my house for months. They are just cutting 'pathways' making it unsafe to walk your dogs or for children to play. This town is an absolute JOKE!

When will we get a refund for the lack of collections on Thursdays? Last week the black bin was left to rot and this week both the blue and green bins will not be emptied. If we have to pay in advance through the council tax surely some sort of refund can be made available! The council are failing to fulfil their service to the community.
