In the alleyway directly in-between Cecil St & Warrington St in Stalybridge (SK15 2EL), there are numerous black & brown bins that have been filled by workmen whom when visiting various properties on either street, have carried out their jobs and then instead of simply taking away their commercial rubbish and disposing of it in the right way; they’ve disposed of it using the households recycling bins situated in the alleyway! Some residents have also incorrectly filled their bins and simply left them without any consequence of their actions!! In particular the 2 black bins from no 32 Warrington street have both been filled with mixed rubbish despite the bin men leaving red tickets, but the people still leave the bins as is. There is no consequences for their actions and so therefore there is now approximately 8-10 black & brown bins that are full with mixed rubbish and recycled materials!! The bin men simply refuse to dispose of it. So who’s supposed to get rid of it then!? Currently it’s just being left there which is cluttering up the alleyway and then the bins are being added to by others from a near by company who I’ve seen emptying the contents of their cars rubbish. This will continue the longer that these bins are left and not removed. I have personally shifted lots of this rubbish myself already using my own car, but I refuse to spend any more of my own personal time doing this, it isn’t my job nor my rubbish or fault and I refuse to clean up any more after other people who simply get away with this! No one seems to care, but this needs sorting ASAP!
