The Byway in Coldean no garbage collection in five weeks

A STREET has been left without garbage collection for five weeks.

Residents of The Byway, Coldean needed to clean up the mess left by foxes and badgers rummaging through their maggot-infested bins.

The street has had intermittent problems with garbage collection since October last year.

Brighton and Hove City Council said access to the road could be hampered by vehicles parked at the junction and this had “frustrated collection efforts”.

It comes after the council announced last October’s Brighton bin strike will cost an extra £859,000 a year to boost pay for Cityclean workers.

A local resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “We had foxes, badgers, rats. We had to set up humane rat traps to fight them.

“In the end there were some students who left in July and all their things were still there.

“I work at 7 a.m. and have to go out before work to tidy everything up. It got pretty gross.

“Millions of little flies come out of the trash cans when you open them.

“It got pretty dark.

“The foxes will still go through the recycling bins hoping there’s something there. At night it’s foxes and badgers, during the day it’s generally gulls and other birds.

“The cars are not that big of an obstacle, people generally know not to park their cars there because they live here.

“Bushes are overgrown on the other side, but that doesn’t stop a truck from coming down here.”

A spokesman for the council said: “We would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused to residents by the missed collections.

“We take missed pickups seriously and are taking action to resolve the issues.

“Access for Cityclean trucks to The Byway can be hampered by parked vehicles near the entrance to the road, which has thwarted collections efforts.

“We are looking for a long-term solution to resolve this situation. In the meantime, we will dispatch a crew to clean up the rubbish as soon as possible and continue to monitor the situation.”
