Cllr. Mrs. Brockway said she was impressed with how the driver manoeuvred the twenty-six tonne lorry smoothly through some incredibly narrow and difficult traffic situations. "This was far from easy and it took me a few attempts before I got the hang of things.
"I'm really grateful to the team for giving me the benefit of their time and experience."
"Refuse and recycling is one service that directly impacts on all residents and therefore it is important that councillors fully understand the difficulties of the service and the need to make it as simple as possible for residents to recycle".
