Binmen miss more rubbish collections in Welwyn Garden City
FOR the second successive day, Welwyn Hatfield’s binmen have been overwhelmed by the amount of rubbish left out for them to collect.
A total of 21 roads in the Handside area of WGC did not have their garden waste taken away today (Wednesday).
That adds to the 27 roads in Digswell Park and Handside that were missed yesterday (Tuesday), with the council having to embarrassingly admit residents have left out too much for the binmen to cope with, as they get used to new routes.
A new statement on Welwyn Hatfield Council’s website says: “Unfortunately we have been unable to service some of the roads in the Handside area today. “This is due to the volume of garden waste presented and the crews familiarising themselves to the new collection rounds.
“We intend to revisit the area to collect tomorrow (Thursday).”
