Bath's recycling and food waste collections have been severely disrupted over the last week as workers go on strike.
Rubbish has been piling up outside homes across the city as Bath and North East Somerset Council struggle to clear the backlog.
The council have been putting on extra crews and say progress is being made:
We are doing our utmost but it will take time to resolve this difficult situation, which is not of our making. We appreciate that residents are being inconvenienced, so we thank you for your patience and for continuing to recycle.
Only half of collections are currently taking place and despite extra crews being diverted rubbish is now piling up.
In an unusual move the council is now asking whether members of the public want to join the clear up operation on a short term paid basis.
The workers are striking in a dispute over pay with their contractor Kier and has been ongoing since the 31 December.
They are currently taking industrial action 2 days a week - forming a picket line outside Kier's headquarters.
