ANGRY residents claim to have spotted dead rats, maggots and bluebottles in communal bins that have been full for more than three weeks.

People living in The Hollies housing estate, Breightmet, said foul smells have been coming from the communal bins. Neighbours claim the council is not telling them what will be done about the bins.

Bolton Council has apologised for not emptying the bins and confirmed a collection was missed during a national strike of public sector workers.

Sara Vernon, who has lived in The Hollies in Breightmet Fold Lane, for 24 years.

The estate is managed by housing association Bolton at Home. Ms Vernon, aged 48, who is a local author, said: “All of us living in The Hollies have got to put rubbish in these bins, but we can’t because they are so full.

“The bins have not been emptied for a long time and in this hot weather they smell, the food in them is the real problem.

“I have seen all sorts in there, maggots, bluebottles and I even saw a dead rat at one point.”

She said she has tried to contact the council but claims she has received no response.

Ms Vernon added: “They are just not communicating with us, we need to know when this is going to get sorted — we have nowhere to put our rubbish and it is not fair because if we drop litter on the floor we would get fined.”

In a response, Bolton Council said because of the national strike, no bins were collected on July 10.

After the Bolton News contacted the council, the bins have now been emptied.

A spokesman said: “We are working hard to resolve the issues caused by this and we’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused to residents.

“The bins in Breightmet Lane have been emptied and all those households whose bins were missed due to the strike were also due to be collected on Thursday July 24.

“The council recognises that the strike caused difficulty for some householders.

“If any residents do not currently have a recycling bin, which are free, they can be ordered online from bolton.gov.uk or by calling 01204 336632.”

I was under the impression that food waste had to put in green bins, which are collected weekly. Perhaps a communal one could be supplied by the Council

I am amazed at the claims without photographic evidence.

I do not agree with the council collection system, but residents need to be taking images and presenting the evidence.

It's such a shame that it takes a complaint to the press, before the lazy, corrupt council actually pull their finger out and do their job. Especially as emptying your bins is about the only return we get on the ever increasing council tax we are forced to pay.

My bin day was Thursday and the lazy a** workers couldn't be bothered to walk 15 yards down a back street to get my bin. Thus it has not been emptied now for 4 weeks due to the strike! They are supposed to be coming back Monday to empty, it is a disgrace!

The refuge collectors have never had it so good does anyone remember the tin bins? All you had to do was leave your gate unlocked they would take it out put it over their shoulder tip it into the bin wagon return your bin into your yard and close the gate. I'm aged 70 live in a flat that has steps leading to my bin if I don't drag my bin up the steps onto the main road they leave it full so what can I do iv reported this but nothing has been done.

Suppose that was the councils fault as well.
Never mind, you'll be saying to your insurance how badly injured you were, how you can't do anything for yourself, how it's affected your sex life, how you have had to have time off work, how you can't drive due to the trauma caused by the accident etc. then you can spend your claim money on fags and chips

Barbara, surely a younger neighbour could have helped you? I too remember the tin bins (just about) and at that time most folk had open fires, this was a lot of the burnable waste was made into heat for your home. This is why we had predominantly metal bins for the ashes and less waste but with the introduction of gas central heating, the seduction of the open fire has sadly gone. Hence moving the populous onto the wheeled bins, this saved the backs of the bin men who had done this before, if this was still happening could you imagine the compensation bill for all those with bad backs? I think that the wheeled bins are much better in this modern society, for the bin men and for us. I hope one of your neighbours comes forth and helps take yours out for you.....

Well said my friend. A lot of people treat refuse collectors like second class citizens, mounting the pavement in their cars to get past the wagon, even though the crew is trying to collect the bins and have to jump out of the way, people abusing them even though they have been told what you can and cannot put in the bin, then shouting abuse when it's left because they didn't listen and put anything they want in. But when bins aren't collected I think they realise how important a service it is the boys and girls provide

I had to use my recycling bins as black ones a while back and I had arranged for them to be emptied as black bins on the usual collection.
I also decided to ring on the day to check that it was all o.k and still being done which was confirmed.
20 minutes later they come for the bins and left mine because they wern't black.
I had to chase the bin men 100 yards down the back alley to point out that they were all notified of this to which they said " O.I yeah something were mentioned" and I was then told to FETCH THE BINS TO THEM TO BE EMPTIED!
I wouldn't care but the sods just carried on down the alley and were looking and laughing at me trailing these full bins now 150 yards down.

Sometimes between the call centre and the refuse crew things don't always get communicated but all you have to do is ask we do a lot more than were suppose to it's better to do a good turn than a bad one. On most days we move over 25 tonnes of refuse and if everyone used there recycling bins as second bins what would happen. Even though most days we do take extra refuse you still can't please everyone. You for instance you had your bin emptied your extra refuse moved and your still moaning. Hard work was it asking the bin men.

Sometimes between the call centre and the refuse crew things don't always get communicated but all you have to do is ask we do a lot more than were suppose to it's better to do a good turn than a bad one. On most days we move over 25 tonnes of refuse and if everyone used there recycling bins as second bins what would happen. Even though most days we do take extra refuse you still can't please everyone. You for instance you had your bin emptied your extra refuse moved and your still moaning. Hard work was it asking the bin men.
yes it was hard work because it was made out like they were doing me a favour but they were not because it was orders from the powers that be.
They were asked to do it and they were reminded the same day and I still had to ask them... sorry chase them to do what they were all ready asked to do TWICE!
I even arranged a visit from the council to look at my particular incident and it was he that suggested and arranged for my recycle bins to be collected as black bins.
The bin men also "went to the trouble" of moving an old three piece suite from the alley way and throwing it outside my house so they could get their wagon down, what makes them think I want it?
They also "went to the trouble" of moving my bins to a house 50 YARDS AWAY.. the same bins that they were asked to empty TWICE by their bosses.
So the answer to your question is yes it was hard.
I'm a fit 25 year old but they never knew that, I could of quite easily been my 80 odd year old next door neighbours having to chase you all down the backs with two full bins.

You moved 2 bins down a back street and all of a sudden your iron man. Yes the lads missed your recycling bins but how do you know they were told and it's easy to lose track of what and where your up too and we see loads of contaminated recycling bins. Following that truck everyday it's hard graft and the bins are so heavy now. It's a sad fact but not many bin men enjoy a long retirement due to the years of physical abuse there body's are put under. I'm not disrespecting your job but you need to try refuse collection before your calling them names.

Ey thats fair comment that pal, just saying that to be told twice including on the same day and then to forget about it is a bit mad.
When I asked them about it they then remembered about it but I still had to chase them all down the backs, why did they carry on down and LAUGH after admitting fault?

Why did they go to the trouble of moving my contaminated bins well out of my sight and then replace them with someones scruffy old suite?

What would of happened if it was an elderly couple?

With me doing everything I could to rectify the whole contaminated bin situation including arranging a visit from the council and allowing him to arrange for the bins to be emptied as well as ringing on the day to double check, Why did it ever happen?

I don't deserve to be laughed at and if it was say... my mother or father that it had happened to then i'd be after slapping them for taking the wee out of them as I'm sure anyone else would.
It was complete disrespect shown by the crew so in my eyes your all the same as bin men in council uniform are representatives for the whole work force.
Your council tax and everyone elses is to be used on services that includes rubbish collections so it would be nice if any planks that like taking the wee out of folk are sifted out as it is not what we pay for

Point taken. On my round if folk ask we sort it for them we always do more than what were suppose to I can't comment on how another crew works.
