We’ve bin had!

Day two of the snow ‘chaos’ and Lichfield’s binmen are enjoying a cup of Horlicks once more.

The council have decided that it’s too unsafe for them to do their rounds. I can understand that some of the side streets might be unsafe, but surely the main roads could be collected?

Given the fact that the schools are all open and the rest of us have had to go to work it seems a bit odd that binmen are at a greater risk level than the rest of us.

According to their statement online, they’ll now be collecting black bins instead next week where applicable. However, they won’t be accepting any side waste. You can however take it to the tip at Trent Valley – as long as you remember it’s not open on Mondays and Tuesdays!
