The Enterprise contract is still in a crisis, almost a year in and the figures are getting worse. My walk to school is just depressing and the streets in my neighbourhood have got visibly dirtier in the last few weeks.
I pulled out the missed collection numbers up until January, see graph below. Almost 6,000 collections were missed in January and the figures have got worse three months running. On average, over ten months missed collections were 4.5 times worse than they were under the old contract. In ten months last year 10,000 collections were missed. In the same ten months under the Enterprise contract 44,000 collections were missed, that is 34,000 more missed collections in ten months with the new contract.
The council and Enterprise have screwed up massively. And they continue to do so.
