SIR, - Congratulations to the refuse collectors and staff of St Albans District Council for restoring the rubbish collection to normality so quickly and efficiently.

I find your letter writers' criticisms (Herts Advertiser, February 12) selfish. I could set my watch by our dustmen.

Do your correspondents ever thank them in the 51 weeks of the year when things go smoothly? Then when the roads are treacherous and the pavements icy and snow-packed, they let rip.

Do these people really want the fractured limbs of rubbish collectors on their consciences?

How easy it is to knock public servants without considering the long hours they put in clearing up our mess. My road is now clear of rubbish. Just a few days of inconvenience to ensure the maximum health and safety of all.

MRS FRANCES LONGFORD,

Marshalswick Lane, St Albans.
