Welwyn Garden City OAP not had bin emptied for seven weeks
A DISABLED elderly woman has been left “stressed out” after being overlooked for bin collections for SEVEN weeks.
Steve Kibler, of Great Ley, WGC, whose 80-year-old mum Jeannine lives in Warren Dale, also in WGC, said: “Without counting garden rubbish my mum has had nothing taken away for seven weeks.
“I regard it as a health and safety issue.
“She’s made five phone calls to the council.”
Mrs Kibler is registered with the council to receive assisted bin collections, but Mr Kibler said: “Bags are stacking up outside her front door.”

Mr Kibler said he was irritated by council statements claiming the new recycling and refuse regime was going well.
He said: “I don’t like people being misled.
“We all pay for these services and my mum is starting to get really stressed out about it.”
Mr Kibler said unless a solution was found quickly he would “start dumping his rubbish in the street” in protest.
A spokeswoman for Welwyn Hatfield Council said: “At the moment Serco are still investigating the exact circumstances and the exact situation.”
