SIR - I live in a block of flats in Wheathampstead and black bags for our rubbish have not been supplied since September. I have written to and e-mailed St Albans District Council many times but have just been ignored.

We have nothing to put our rubbish in. We have a bin cupboard for the bags which are collected up by the bin men. Upon phoning the council, I was told different stories. First that the black bags would be supplied again; then we had to buy our own; then we were going to have a Euro bin supplied, but nothing has happened.

Last week the council had a cheek to send us all a letter telling us that we cannot put any other bags in the bin cupboard as the bin men will not take them - we must put our rubbish in black bags.

I have no intention of buying my own bags. What a nerve to tell us that we have to. This is another example of district council inefficiency and what gets on my nerves is they just don't care.

Are there any other flats in this area with the same problem?

IDA KIFF,

Allen Close, Wheathampstead.
