Over the last couple of years the Lib Dem / SNP Council has failed to solve its bin dispute. As a symbol of the ineptness and lack of political leadership of the Council the overflowing bins are pretty potent. The dispute started in June 2009 and is still ongoing. The result is that there are communities across the city experiencing a level of service which is simply unacceptable. The issue is regularly raised on the doors by local residents who cannot believe that the dispute is still not sorted.
