CONSERVATIVES have called on the council to remove uncollected waste from recycling bins at a park that has been behind barriers for months.
Bins were installed in prominent places around Wish Park in Hove by Brighton and Hove City Council, but the rubbish piled up and was surrounded by metal barriers for around six months.
Conservative councilors Garry Peltzer Dunn and Robert Nemeth said many residents and park users have complained regularly about the litter bins and have repeatedly raised the issue with council and been assured of action. However, the pair said nothing has been done so far.
Cllr Nemeth said: “Placing recycling bins in a park is a welcome step to begin the long task of trying to improve the city’s dismal recycling rates, but not emptying them makes no sense.
“When the Greens and Labor backed the recent strikes, the public expected services to improve.
‘Cllr Peltzer Dunn and I think leaving these bins behind unsightly high fences for months on end is simply unacceptable when recycling rates are so low.’
Brighton and Hove City Council has been contacted for comment.
