11 November 2018Reader reports on a refuse collection.

Secret video recordings are being planned to record refuse collections

Following a shocking report by a Neath resident in Readers Letters, it is alleged that several residents have got together to video refuse collections in various areas in Neath with the aim of putting it on Youtube.

The residents claim that some of the 'bin men' have no pride in their job and have no respect for residents who pay their wages through council tax.

The refuse collectors will not know when or where they are being filmed.
It has been said the only way to tackle the problem is to film and shame with the hope that video evidence will help the authorities to take appropriate action.

It is predicted that the new system will see an increase in fly tipping and in the end will cost the Council more money to clear it, as the present clear sacks will no-longer be collected.
