Yep but the damage was done from weeks of telling us it was a suspension of a week or two and so we all carried on using our garden bins as normal. Was after about 6 weeks that they came out and said that actually they were suspending the service indefinitely. By that point everyone's garden bins had been full up for weeks and so were just left to sit. They were pretty rotten so no one particularly fancied putting it into cars so it's just been left. The council finally bowed to pressure given their lack of effort and they agreed a single collection to get everyone sorted. Going forward we'll all have to use the tip however at least we know that and won't be using our garden bins until the service is resumed.
In our neighbourhood forum, someone organised a private company to pick up.. 10 quid per bin.. I am assuming it was legally disposed rather than flytipped somewhere
