This is the worst council! Nobody answers the phone, how many times I have called. Then I learned (not from them) they are working from home! Why!!! What are they paid for???? SOOOOOO ridiculous.

I have lost the will to live when dealing with BCBC. It takes way too long for them to pick up and your already on the phone for several minutes before your even put through to a department…and then they don’t pick up for 45 minutes.Absolute bloody joke.

Waited over 50 minutes for someone to answer the phone , no joy. Quick enough sending out demands for council tax. Absolutely dreadful service and no value for the extortionate amount of council tax we are charged. Would have given them no stars if option was available

The services are absolutely a huge joke. We pay one of the most expensive council taxes in Wales, for such a poor services. Long holding hours on phone lines, missed trash and garden waste collections. Such a joke.

Breaks my heart when I realise I have to phone the council for something. Wait for ages for someone to answer and you know in your heart nothing will be done about it. If its council tax your ringing about then thats even worse.

sending an email , the response was quick and decisive. They called me after a few days to arrange a visit. In the same way, when I fill in the applications and send an e-mail, the answer is in my mailbox after a few days.

The worst Council in the UK yet one of the most expensive. Nothing is fit for purpose nor the service we receive (or don’t) is value for money. I’m actually at a loss as to where our council tax payments go. Huge overhaul is needed along with an external audit of our monies

Impossible to get in touch!!! Recycling service is awful , they refused to collect one of the recycling bags and I have no idea why , yet there is nobody in the office to provide any explanation or support. Simply awful, seriously why the hell we are paying so much for the service that is non existent

Absolutely disgusting people, I agreed to pay and confirmed to pay council tax around 70 quid every month l and now I had a letter threatening me that I will hear from the magistrates court over about that I owe nearly 200 quid that I cannot afford l. Absolutely disgusting and a shame for pe3who work there.

They were meant to change our address and didn’t so council tax bills we were meant to know about, we didn’t know about, and they have passed it over to bailiffs!!!!!! Disgusting council, had many other problems with them. I know a man who works for numerous councils and says this is by far the worst council he has ever seen.

What an absolute shambles. Impossible to get through to anyone via telephone. If you have an hour to waste why not call BCBC who’ll prattle away about the services they provide, give you a long list of departments (none of whom answer their phones) and then cut you off just as you lose the will to live

Worst council I have ever experienced, all around appalling. From recycling to dealing with council tax issues pure incompetence. The fact that the recycling services are so appalling leaves huge concerns for the general apearance of the county. Poor management and incompetent contractors. Shocking!

Clueless and incompetent. I spoke to some rude, odious toad of a women in the tax office when I was after some simple information. I’ve never spoken to someone so arrogant and lacking in customer service skills in a ll my life. They’d do well to remember who pays their wages.
