This morning the rubbish strewn down Station Street by the council refuse collection making Lewes look a bit like Brighton (see link below).

Maybe this is future of our town as increasingly refuse and recycling services are being franchised out to Brighton and Brighton refuse service managers seconded by LDC.

The Barcombe bin boys are quick, clean and efficient.
They do a fantastic job. Well done LDC.

Can't really see any difference, Brighton's always been a sh1thole. Though many mistake this for it being 'vibrant'

What about the people who always put the rubbish out the same day as normal after a bank holiday, short term memory loss! It can't be that hard to remember.
The pavements in Lewes are looking particularly messy at the moment, I miss that generation of householders who use to sweet up outside their front doors, clear the weeds and generally have a bit of pride. Sorry to be so reactionary but my new neighbours have turned a nice looking house into a bit of a squat.

We put our food bin out this morning as usual. Went to bring it in this afternoon and it had more food in it than before. How does that work?

There needs to be a special collection along the High Street at about 6pm. in order to avoid the problem of rubbish being left outside shops all night.

Cannot log on as jolewes as the system won't let me. I have said in other threads that the council won't budge. All litter including broken bin bags is the responsibility of the householders. So, they either get up early to put their bags out or they buy a bin. Easy.
Also, the council only clean side streets every 6 weeks. Just under 3 grand in council tax well spent then.

So the government have finally woken up to the fact they need to ensure Local Councils are value for money and making them more transparent. Horrray, the gravy train is slowing down !

Talking of Brighton, the place really does look dreadful at the moment with rubbish strewn everywhere. I wonder what Alfie Green thinks about the way his colleagues are running things there? Probably hoping that voters have short memories...

05:38 this morning - woken by a bunch of little sh1ts who thought it would be funny to rip open bags of rubbish and cover Lansdown Place in their contents. Not the bin men or residents at fault but the parents that let their kids wander the streets all night!

As someone who works in Brighton there is a staggering lack of sympathy for the bin men here. As I understand it their conditions of employment are better than almost anyone I know and the 4,000 pay cut isn't representative of what most will experience. More will be better off under the new proposal than worse off so you have to wonder whether their complaints are justified.
