MORE than 120 complaints are being made to the city council every day over uncollected rubbish.

The shock figure includes the failed pick-ups of household wheelie bins, recycling, food waste and on-street communal bins.

Between January and November last year, 40,662 complaints regarding waste collection were lodged – 95 per cent of which came from householders whose rubbish hadn’t been taken.
