Man fined after another #QuackCWaC Council cock up

Oliver Morris, 23, of Walpole Street, said he thought he was doing the right thing by calling
the council to tell them his bin bags had been left on the pavement.

But Mr Morris, a sales assistant, said he was made to feel like a criminal when council staff came to his
address and told him he and his girlfriend had flouted the law and would be fined £75.

Mr Morris said: “The binmen had not taken our rubbish bags. “I just want the council to know I feel grossly mistreated.”

Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) spokesman Shirley Wingfield said: “We understand that all the rubbish put out for collection on Tuesday, March 6, was collected.

“Also if rubbish is not collected, the person who put the rubbish out should return it to his or her property and contact the council on 0300 123 7026 or via the website to arrange a secondary collection, which we would be happy to undertake.”

My comment: Another QuackCWaC Council cock-up excused with their typical spin and nonsense. The bottom line is that he did contact the council and he did tell them the bags had not been collected so why didn't they arrange a secondary collection instead of sending the bin police round?

Looks to me like they cocked up a second time instead of correcting their initial cock up.
