I am always ready to give praise where it is due, even when a Labour-controlled council is involved. Neath Port Talbot's refuse collection was hit in the week before Christmas, but recovered better than most. I understand that our staff had largely caught up on collections by the end of the second week. Contrast that with a neighbouring (also Labour-controlled) authority, where some refuse lay uncollected for a month and the "siberian hamster" population is thriving as a result.
