Changing streets

It’s difficult to believe the excuses that are given sometimes for the problems with the new waste and recycling collections in Swindon. This quote comes from one of the council’s recycling officers.

Collection is difficult in some areas because of the layout of streets, but we are trying to sort it out

Except, perhaps, for a few streets in North Swindon which have only just been built, the council were collecting rubbish without problems before the recycling service started, so why the problems now? The vehicles used are no bigger than those used before.
