Since January 1, Tauranga City Council has not collected the rubbish on Nicolas Place, Judea. On two occasions, it has been left to sit in the hot, hot sun.
These are council-paid bags sitting in the street’s gutters for two weeks, and the cats and dogs ripping them up are having lots of fun.
But for us living in Nicolas Place, to be forgotten by the council is a total disgrace. We pay for our bags and put them out at the right time.
We expect them to be picked up, but they have not been collected. They are left in the hot sun to rot.
The flies are multiplying and, today, I found a dead rat - my biggest fear.
All this because a rubbish truck bypassed Nicolas Place.
