Wealden council also to blame for waste collection debacle

Following last week’s front page article I am pleased to say the long-awaited recycling rubbish collection has taken place and that Monday’s (today’s) general rubbish has been collected on time.

I wish to thank Councillor Charles Peck for his work in getting the former done.

Nevertheless, whereas Kier are performing an internal review on ‘what went wrong’ there appears to be little interest within Wealden District Council of doing a similar review.

The ease with which Wealden, both officers and most of the elected representative I have been corresponding with, point the finger at Kier, is astounding. While I agree Kier should perform their contracted duty of rubbish collection there must have been serious omissions in the hand-over process, which involved both parties.
