How do we get our collections?

I would be grateful if one of your readers could give advice on how we can get the Rother District Council contractors to collect the cardboard, paper and glass recycling on a regular basis from numbers 9 to 24 Senlac Gardens in Battle.

Since the new contractors took over in the middle of the year we have had every second collection missed.

I have tried to get something done from our local councillor, our local MP (it’s nothing to do with him!) and various people at Rother District Council without success.

I have been monitoring the parking in the Gardens and it is the same whichever of the contractors lorries comes, as well as other delivery vehicles.

In over 40 years these are the only missed collections other than in poor weather conditions.

No-one else has any trouble delivering or collecting.
