  1. Not had a blue bin collected for over a month now either.

    Must be thousands of tonnes of recyclable aluminium, steel, plastic and paper going to landfill which is a bit of an environmental pity aside of the increased landfill taxes and site tipping royalties.

    Notice also that all of the open grass areas like verges are being left uncut. That is unfortunate since grass cutting in open area is something that could potentially be done by socially distanced working.

    Unfortunately, by leaving the grass to grow wild it might become a haven for infection bearing horse flies, clegs and the likes. No doubt plenty of overtime will sort it when it’s deemed safe to start cutting grass again. In the meantime folks should avoid exercising in the long grass.

  2. Looks like we are going back to where we were with the grass cutting and austerity. The SNP have still not got the message that austerity doesn’t work. It simply stacks up problems for the future and what’s saved is more than spent getting things back to where we were. This may be small beer, but as you know, many a meikle macks a muckle. For example, the street lamps on our road are rusting and have have been left to do so for years. They will fall down for the want of a lick of paint and have to be replaced at great cost. That’s the kind of common sense thinking we don’t have at WDC. Has McColl popped his head above the parapet yet since that crazy outburst about Baillie?
