Refuse collection. recycling and waste disposal
Pembrokeshire County Council
Ms X complained that the Council repeatedly missed recycling and waste collections following a change in process of kerbside collection in November 2019.
The Ombudsman was concerned to note that despite the complaint being escalated to Stage 2 in September 2021, it had not yet been concluded. The Council therefore agreed to undertake the following action in settlement of this complaint by 28 July 2022:
1. Apologise for the delay in completing its investigation and responding.
2. Make a time and trouble payment of £50 for the inconvenience.
3. Compete the investigation and issue its Stage 2 response.
