Orihuela Council leaves rubbish in street for 13 Days!

As a direct result of the failure of the Orihuela, Partido Popular controlled, Town Council, the rubbish shown in the photograph has been in Calle Ontario, at the corner with Calle Baikal in Orihuela Costa since the 28th April (13 days).

The reason is because the Council's refuse cleaning contractors have failed to carry out  their task to collect it. During the period the rubbish has been dumped, several of the company's lorries have driven past, but instead of collecting it, or even part of it, they just drove past.

Having notified the Council of this problem by email last evening (11th May) I wait to see how many more days it will still be there.

This is not the first time I have had to request the Council to clear longterm dumped rubbish and I'm sure it will not be the last. It's a continual failure of the basic service of refuse collection.
