I read the headline 'changes to rubbish collections', and my first thought was, "Good, they're going to actually collect some".

Great stuff, so the cards they put through the doors are worthless, Fantastic council, again they give us the wrong information. Dec 24th is not a bank holiday. So lets see how many people still put the bins and bags out that day.
