Perhaps someone can advise me on the correct amount of refuse bags one can leave out for collection each fortnight. I live in a maisonette in very close proximity to the town centre.

The two maisonettes in the block have a small area where refuse sacks can be left while awaiting collection. Naturally this was designed to hold sufficient rubbish based on a weekly collection, consequently I now have to store my refuse in my garden as there is not enough room in the storage facility. I arrived home this evening to find six, uncollected black sacks full of rubbish still sitting on my front lawn.

The refuse collectors had obviously decided that the three or four bags they collected was our limit for the fortnight. 'Unbelievable' was not the first word that sprang to my mind as I saw it but it certainly came a close second.
