Disgraceful Council

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Birmingham City Council really is disgusting. I am a carer and they don't even provide a carers grant for a break away and now they have taken to leaving everyone's household garbage in the streets uncollected for almost 5 weeks in this second City. Causing giant rats to come and maggot infestations. Not the first time either.

Thought our council was shocking but this is really terrible.
It's still ongoing Paul. They have picked the bins up once in 9 weeks and that's all...Really bad!
