A strike by Scottish refuse workers over a pay dispute continues in Edinburgh, resulting in piles of rubbish and overflowing bins in the city center.
The city’s refuse workers started a 12-day strike on August 18 in an attempt to force Scottish council leaders to improve on a “derisory” 3% pay offer.
The strike is set to continue until Tuesday, a day after the city’s international arts and Fringe festivals ends. The festivals run through most of August and draw millions of visitors to the Scottish capital.
“Thousands of tourists visiting the city for the … Fringe festival getting the wrong impression of this great city,” a Twitter user wrote on Friday, posting pictures of mounds of waste near Edinburgh’s Royal Mile thoroughfare.
