Some photos of Poet's Corner where the hoped-for rubbish collection (Monday) did not happen. This wouldn’t be a problem if they had wheelie bins but because of the location (very small pavement) they can't and while I don’t blame the Council for that, I do have a problem in that the nearby St Peters Footpath is clear of ice along with the road part (the majority) of Poet’s Corner.
A TDC press release now says this rubbish wont be collected till next week. I really don’t understand the problem here. Poet’s Corner is light traffic wise and while perhaps the pavement itself is icy, the road is easily walkable. Park a van at the St Peters Footpath end and get the guys to walk it up the road…
While its great to see the ivy cleared thanks to the local street cleaner, the rubbish keeps appearing there along with Milton Square (collection on Tuesdays). Again, the roads round there are clear. A mattress remains on the YMCA side and has been there for about two weeks now. Incidentally, that dumpster has been flung open for about the same period and its a horrible eyesore.
St Johns Road (Thursday) is amongst the photos. The rubbish there has been an issue for a while now and the spilled rubbish was there well before that snow.
