Never needed services from TBC before but I now care for my elderly father and have been routed throught One Trafford for district nurses, refuse, Occupational Theropists etc. I now dread the words One Trafford! I feel battered and stressed. Is it just me?
I make that Two Traffords. Von, Two! (I love to count.)
Access Trafford is Trafford Council i.e. libraries, schools, social services, Council tax etc.
One Trafford is the name used for the partnership with Amey - they deal with the services privatised to Amey provide such as roads, parks, and bins.
Yes, there was and still is. "Access Trafford" on 0161 912 2000. How that differs from "One Trafford" is a mystery.
Did there not used to be a single number, something like 0161 912 2000, to access Trafford Council's services?
It's one number for all services. Makes access to services easier for people. The alternative is a directory of hundreds of out-of-date names and numbers much like a printed phone directory.
ONE Trafford, just what does the 'ONE' mean? The same can be said about ONE Salford.
Best place to paint the number is underneath and on the side, if you suspect your scumbag neighbour of taking it you can relieve it of its contents on their drive at the same time as checking.
Hi,Thanks for your support.The bin did have large numbers on it by the way.I was just a bit miffed at One Traffords attitude with the none refund policy. As 25 pounds is alot of money if you dont have it.
Wozza. Paint your number in a very large large size on the side of the bin, that way nobody should claim it as theres. I also agree that you should not be liable to pay
A couple of years ago my daughter's grey bin went missing. The Council said there would be a charge for a new one. The other recycling bins, green, black and blue, are free and you can have more than one if you want. When she said she didn't think she should have to pay as someone had obviously taken it, they said report it to the Police! Eventually she found another one left out which nobody claimed so she uses that one.
I agree with Divad. Take it up with your ward councillors. Trafford Council have a legal obligation to collect your refuse. The cost should be recovered through your council tax, not through the sale of bins.
Hi all my grey bin went missing the other week could not find along my road. Phoned One Trafford 25 pound charge for a new one surprised but paid. The other day bin returned surprised again so I phoned one trafford again to explain. Dont need another one, only to be told sorry mate no refunds. And wont even get a new bin. Trafford council how can you justify this service.
