7 October (Part 1) - More brown bin excuses

Bexley council is still in trouble with its brown bin roll out. It has issued another Press Release to advise residents when they might be provided with a bin.

They appear to be very concerned about the charging period that will apply. The important thing to remember is that the contract is for 25 collections. Make sure you note the date of your first collection.

The excuse that demand exceeded expectations is of course entirely bogus. When the subject was first aired in council the expectation was that 40% of Bexley’s 75,000 households would sign up. Lying comes naturally to Bexley council.

If it was really true that they they had initially expected orders for only 10,000 bins as the Press Release indicates and now they are having to distribute 30,000 there would not be enough refuse trucks or manpower either. In case you haven’t noticed, all the old garden and food trucks have been replaced by new ones with 15 registration plates. Bexley council is not complaining there are not enough of them.

Bexley council is making excuses for its failings again.
