Absolute worst council we have ever had contact with. Have ongoing issues with the bins and bin men for almost a year, keep getting told it’s been dealt with and that letters have been sent out, which they haven’t. Incompetent liars. They …

tried to arrange a DIY waste collection. Council said it would be 5 working days. 2 weeks on and the waste is still sitting there.
Tried to complain and the reply was they will respond in 15 working days. Total joke

Probably the worst web site I have ever tried to use. For a government web site this is appalling. You enter the correct information and it keeps saying that the details are incorrect!!!

Sick of chasing the waste side for delivery of two green bins which were paid for weeks ago! All the onus is on the customer to chase. Promised to resolve in mid March but still waiting. Shocking!!!

A generally poor quality of council managing incompetent staff. I made a complaint about a lack of response to bags of food waste left outside premises for several days. I never heard back. When I complained again, the ‘named person’ who …

Council tax rebate, if you pay by direct debit ( which I do) you should get this payment automatically, but no they send another form to ask for the same bank details, this then sits for 6- 8 weeks, the website says 28days. When you call …

Worst council. Useless unprofessional people at every department. No protection from bad neighbours. No proper communication, no proper waste collection. They don’t know what they are doing, confusion all the time. Now they are hidden …

‘Save time do only what Pendle Council wants -your money – online’. Awful. No humans, no replies, I may as well try a seance. Go to the office and be told no one works there and no one wants to speak to you about anything whatsoever. As …

Very poor service, no one knows what the hell is going on. Trying to get an answer to a simple question, switchboard is clueless as to which department to send me, so I’ve been sent to most of the 7 options now… none of which are correct. Really bad service and a total waste of my time..

First thing that occurs when you phone them is you get a mindless recorded voice answering the phone; it’s like something out of League of Gentlemen telling you how much time you can save if you do it on-line though this automated process …

Snow (even small amounts) means that they won’t bother to attempt to empty your bins. Then for some reason they would rather lie to you and tell you that they have now been emptied, rather than just tell the truth and say that it’ll take …

This is the worst council to deal with anywhere, it’s phone system is rubbish and if you do get to speak to a person they are rude and dismissing of the reason you rang in the first place. What a disgrace it should be reported to the ombudsman and investigated for miss use of public monies.

It’s quite clear that the only way to improve services in this council is not to vote Tory next time. They’ve become complacent because they believe they’ll be voted back in time after time. So wake up my friends & vote Labour.

Don’t expect any of those people employed by the council to actually help with a problem in any way. From the moment they answer the phone you know you are wasting your time, whether it is the Dog Warden, Footpath Officer, Environmental …

Disgraceful and they make things up about people if you complain that the streets needs better cleaning numerous times. Cleaned up a street I lived on once for just over a whole hour as I was sick of all the mess which really they are paid to not people not employed by them – what do we pay the council tax for!!
