Dear Noel Parkers
We agreed at a meeting last month (thank you Mei for organising) to try to log our missing collections in Noel Park. So here is my lack of collection listed.
Friday 9th - rubbish bin emptied, garden and recycling left behind.
Friday 16th - men walked past my house while I watched. I called them back. Man said he didn't see my house.
Friday 23rd - ignored all bins, got annoyed when I called them back, said there wasn't enough in bins.
Friday 30th - recycling left out
PLEASE DO MAKE A NOTE OF YOURS AND ADD THEM TO THE DISCUSSION. THANKS
6th - recycling and rubbish not collected
20th - recycling not collected
27th - only garden waste collected
UPDATE 11 December
Found a Veolia man rummaging in my recycling bin (which was missed out again today).
When I asked what he was doing, he said that my house and the neighbour were on a monitoring list because of missed collections that we had reported. He got a recycling bag and manually emptied my bin. He said that the collection men are not supposed to skip bins even if they think they are not full enough; 'its not up to them to decide' he said. Nice man.
So, the moral of the story is log missed collections on here and tell Veolia directly too. The email I use is firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's get Noel Park cleaned up!
Keep up the complaints when things do happen, they will then start to watch your collection and make sure its done!!
Have you had any problems of late? Mine just started. I've got new neighbours who are using my recycling for rubbish.
Since we complained, we got put on a watch list where a Veolia boss comes and checks we had a collection. For each missed one, he manually got a sack and cleared out our bins :-)
So worth complaining to them each time
