Bin it, Don't Bag It...

July 25, 2019 11:23 AM

Bin bag with waste scattered by street binI've seen, and had reported, a few examples recently of bin emptying where the bin bags are left by waste bins for subsequent collection, which are then attacked and ripped open (by seagulls, mainly). Thanks for the reports (you know who you are!).

I've chased this with the Contracts Manager at F&H Council, who has today said:

"I can confirm that bags should not be left at the side of the bins, I have spoken with Veolia and advised them of the complaint and what is expected.

"They have assured me that this practice will not continue, but please do let me know if it does."

If this stops: good news. But if you continue to see instances of bin bags being left by Veolia next to street bins awaiting collection, please let me know (with date / time, location and a preferably a picture) and I'll give the Contracts Manager the evidence she needs.
