WITH the 12 days of Christmas at least 60% of the householders of Trafford are going to have 13 days of rotting, stinking rubbish.

My own last collection is 22nd December and the next one 4th January - A happy smelly Millennium!!

I would have thought that all those brains employed by Trafford MBC could have come up with some scheme - perhaps double shifts on 28th/29th/30th December - or are they going to issue us with clothes pegs to put on our noses!!!

What a shamble - surely the Public Health Authority should intervenue before there is an outbreak of disease - and worse still an increase in vermin.
