Rutland County Council condemn residents who have been verbally abusive to waste crews
Rutland County Council is condemning the behaviour of a small number of residents who have directed verbal abuse at waste crews while out collecting bins.
The council has been notified of several incidents where crews have been subjected to verbal abuse and threatening behaviour because they cannot collect waste and recycling that is left on the pavement next to wheelie bins.
Cabinet member for waste and environmental services at Rutland County Council Coun Gordon Brown (Con) said: “We wholeheartedly condemn the use of verbal abuse or threatening behaviour towards any of our staff or contractors. This is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
