Poole Maggot Infested Refuse Collections

This petition had 2,809 supporters

Poole council recently decided to scrap the weekly collection of black bin waste in favour of a smaller bin and fortnightly collections. 

As a result, thousands of homes are suffering from maggot infested bins.  The poor quality of the bins means the lids don't seal effectively allowing flies to gain access to the decomposing waste.  It sits there festering in the heat for 2 weeks, turning into a crawling maggot fest and the stench is unbearable. 

Surely this is a health and safety issue not only for home owners but for the refuse collection staff too.

Bring back weekly black bin collections or provide an adequate size and quality bin to stop this happening.
