Garbage piles outside Peterborough houses due to "unsafe rubbish bin"
Garbage bags piled up in front of a block after they had not been collected for nearly three weeks.
The large amount of garbage swells in Townsend Close at Millfield on Lincoln Road, after the company had collected garbage in Peterborough saying a mechanical failure with the containers on site made them unsafe for their employees to use.
One of the residents affected by the problem is Pauline Bartlett (70) corresponding to the Peterborough Telegraph 17 Properties has communicated.

Amey spokesman said: "These vessels developed a mechanical flaw in May 2017. This exposed a large hole in the bottom while emptying the containers.
"Not only was this a threat to our employees, but also to the public, when we advised the owners of the containers to repair them, but no repairs have since been made.
" We have an additional one Employees on our garbage truck used to drive passers-by away from the hole for a few months This is not an adequate, long-term solution to a public risk.
"Health and safety are our top priority, and so we have stopped collecting garbage from this location since November.
" We look forward to having the containers repaired so we can safely continue our collections.
