More uselessness from DBC

I just heard the same thing minutes ago along with the suggestion it was less well-attended than previous years.

Is it something we really need to care about though? Seems trivial... 

Less well attended yet there are concerns re crowd control.  The main issue seems to be the prom lights, that and the lack of the bow on the front of 1886. Not sure what the real issue is though.

It’s just more nonsense delivered by a council that simply hasn’t got a clue. I’m amazed that they are having a meeting to discuss adverse media and social media comments. I’d have thought if you delivered sensible things that the people paying for them actually wanted then the social media feedback would generally be good.

No, that nonsense about crowd control was delivered by a particular individual on the FB thread. 

I just don't know what the issue was relating to the switch on.

Allocated a larger bin, rather than 2 standard bins, and the bin will be marked so the refuse operatives will collect it from next to the front door, rather than me having to take to end of drive.

DRAW.

2 people.

The thrust was very much about increase recycling and reduce waste volume. Why haven’t they been honest about it? 

Sorry John, what did you request a second bin for,  ordinary waste bin or recycling bin?  Completely agree with you that the boxes with a shower cap are pretty impractical, but what was it you needed?  

The thrust has always been about increasing recycling, what have they been dishonest about?

No they have said that it was about crowd control previously themselves on Twitter so I’m sure that person is just picking up on what was said at the time to justify whether it would even go ahead or not. It’s like their £50K a year H&S person was worried that some sort of stampede would erupt when the locals were faced with a few bright lights for an hour and so it might have been easier to do .. nothing (and of course save money).

I’m not surprised if it was a damp squib. There’s no money around. It’s going to be a grim Xmas for many. The highest turnover places that evening were probably Dealz and the Card factory. Which is where most of the money is going to be spent this Xmas.

Just to say the lights on 1886 are nowt to do with DBC so not sure it is relevant to DBC bashing. The health and safety fiasco on the other hand. Did they take into consideration of the lone gunman in the sefton top right bedroom, you may say I'm being stupid but it has as much chance of happening as the other shite they bring up. Like gov, another bigger bunch of pricks you would be hard pushed to find in one place. Morons is not adequate to describe most of the management, but on £70,000 a year who's the fool. I will wait (as with Ashford) to hear the rebutel.

We already had two bins, emptied weekly. So 4 bins a fortnight. Now down to one a fortnight. Wanted to keep two bins.

DBC really didn't sell fortnightly collections on recycle more. That's why they're dishonest.

if they were honest they'd change the way recycling is collected.

What?  You're saying Martin Moore isn't a reliable source of information?  I'm shocked, shocked!

(I assume the stuff about the bow was diagnostic - ie its presence/absence proved those weren't pictures from this year).

Still not sure what post toy refer to - got a Twitter link? I know there wasn’t a “Mayor presses the button moment” to avoid a big crowd forming in one particular location but that’s about it. Strand street is quite narrow so that kinda made sense.
 

It just saddens me that some people can only ever see the negative side of everything we do. It’s the Christmas lights for Pete’s sake. Place was busy, people seemed happy and I even found a sponsor to reduce costs. What  more do you want?

Well personally I thought the fireworks were great & the lights last night was well supported & again not sure what people expected

Thanks John just couldn't understand the two bin aspect.

Have you seen your own videos and tweets and posts which constantly criticise everything on the IOM? Or do you just object to criticism of things you’re connected to? 😂

Funding DBC completely saddens me.

Same here. Now we can only use one of them. But we had to order another green waste bin because the extra bin we already had was the wrong colour to put green waste in. The whole thing is a joke. 

What happens if the Waste Operative (binman to you and me) is colour blind?
