Binmen playing catch-up after pensions strike
FAMILIES have been thanked for their patience after they were left with overflowing bins because of last week's strike action.
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council says it is working hard to catch up on waste collection rounds missed because of last Wednesday's industrial action.
Binmen are prioritising the emptying of blue-lidded bins containing general rubbish, after which crews will collect brown bins containing garden waste and food scraps.
Council deputy leader and environment portfolio holder Arthur Forrester said: "I would like to thank residents for their patience as we strive to catch up on missed collections."

Householders are reminded that cardboard should now be placed in the grey bin used for glass bottles and jars, steel and aluminium cans, and plastics.
Mr Forrester added: "I am also grateful to households for responding so well to the new arrangements for the collection of cardboard."
