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.
