These bins and recycling boxes are constantly left out on a public pavement by the owners of 251A Henleaze Road. Thy have an outdoor garden to keep these boxes and bins but just leave them on the street 24/7 and this results in pedestrians having to manover around them. They also stink as passers by put their dog waste and other rubbish in the bins. This has been reported many times over the last few years

  • Bins and recycling still left on pavement when owners have sufficient space to keep indoors and place out on the street when it’s bin day. Surely this is flytipping? Why is no action taken? Why are they not removed?If we all did this there would be rubbish blown all over the streets and no room on the pavements for pedestrians!

  • Bins are still dumped out in street 24/7. No action taking again. There are 4 recycling bins and 3 black bins on the pavement all the time. As you can imagine in windy conditions the rubbish in the recycling boxes gets thrown around the street and the bins cause a pedestrian hazard.

  • Black Bins and 4 recycling boxes STILL taking up room on the pavement. Nothing had been done about it since reported. What if everyone with adequate outdoor space started leaving their bins and recycling boxes out all the time?

  • Again no action taken. This is a hazard to pedestrians and during windy weather the recycling rubbish gets blown across the pavements and streets. Inevitably the council are called out to clear this rubbish. Surely it would be better to target the actual issue and make the home owners take their bins inside and store them in their gardens??
