18th June 2009 11:40Is anyone having the same hassle as we are with Fingal Co Co? We, and the majority of our estate by the looks it, have switched refuse services from them to Panda. I rang up Fingal to tell them we were no longer with them and could they collect thier bins, simple enough request. I was asked if all three bins (black, green and brown) were empty and within easy access, I said yes to all of that. Eight, going on nine weeks, later we still have six bins in our front garden and the garden is tiny so it looks really awful. Neighours on one side are still with Fingal, so they have the three bins (we live in terraced houses), neighbours on the other side also went with Panda even though the owners paid for the stickers for Fingal. Not sure if the tennants know realise the owners have paid up for the year of Fingal - mad eejits! So if you call over to our house, between three terraced houses there are [b:14x61479]15, yes 15 bins[/b:14x61479] I've lost count the amount of times I've rung Fingal to ask them to collect the bins. One woman told me they'd be collected within two weeks, that was the third call, when I rang back for the umpteenth time, I was told that no way would they be collected within two weeks and I shouldn't have been told that. Thier useless excuse is "we're low on resources and the collections are not done every day" I told the wonan how long we've been waiting and how embarressing it is to have so many bins between so many houses. I said that considering the majority of the estate have switched providers, would they not make a point of coming out to collect so many bins. She said all she can do it mark it Urgent - i'm not holding my breath! Hubby said that he'd take all three bins and dump them outside the Fingal Co Co offices. I said then we'd be done for littering but he said the bins belong to Fingal and they should deal with it! Any suggestions girls????
