THERE have been access problems in Beeston with wheely bins blocking a country lane.
Chester magistrate Margaret Dunbar, 56, of Horsley Lane, Beeston, has had her blue bin out all week waiting for it to be collected and, despite dozens of phone calls, she has had no explanation from the council.
She said: “Horsley Lane is a single-track lane used by huge farm vehicles as well as the usual domestic traffic for 12 properties.
“Having wheelie bins sitting in the lane indefinitely just adds to the problem of trying to pass, especially when a large oil tanker, for example, is delivering.
“We are on the Sandstone Trail and there are lots of walkers each day who have come for a day out. Anyone who has walked down here will have seen the lane littered with wheelie bins. Not the sort of thing to encourage visitors.”
She added: “Having these bins is a nightmare. We can’t get through to anyone to find out what’s happened.”
Across Cheshire rubbish piles are mounting with some communities saying they have been ‘forgotten’.
Cheshire West and Chester Council spokeswoman Shirley Wingfield said: “We are investigating the problems and we apologise if a mistake has been made.”
