Our whole street had our grey bins missed twice in a row so we went 8 weeks between collections. Everyone has a huge backlog of rubbish and now my bin has been stolen out of desperation. I called the council to ask for a new one and I've been told I have to pay, even though it would never have been stolen if they'd emptied our bins, it's ridiculous.

i think it's disgusting asking you to pay when your bins been stolen they make enough out of us paying poll tax somebody fired our green bin through it being left out after not being emptied on correct day then they never came to clear the mess up it had left

Got to cut cut cut more on essentials now they have said they will spend £50million on town centre rather than £35million. Crazy.

Bloody shocking and worse to come with other services being cut too. Too much money going to OTHER things. We should be consulted on what we think is important as tax payers.....RANT OVER!

This service is not acceptable, in fact its not a service& the councillor/s responsible for hiring these contractors clearly aren't doing their job either. How can they let a service provider operate as they want when they are paid to honour a contract. How can the council let it get to this. If all services operated as this one does then we would all be in a mess. Sadly I left Barnsley after 20 years to live & work overseas & I've never heard of such crap as this. Third world stuff.
