Bins left on pavement

Reported via mobile in the Rubbish (refuse and recycling) category anonymously at 15:01, Wed 20 April 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

This household frequently leave full to overflowing bins outside of their premises barely two days after they have been emptied by recycling team. The bins are then left out on the pavement to cause a mess as plastic etc., from them is blown around the area until the next recycling collection which can be 5 days away. These photos have been taken on a Monday, a week apart. The week before that on a Sunday, there was also cardboard piled up alongside which inevitably littered the nearby road but which I didn’t get a photo of. The occupiers need to be told to keep their rubbish inside their boundary on their very large garden area. Or as a frequent littering offender, fined?!

  • It looks a little better on Portview road, black bin still left outside. But bins are on pavement down the side road too/instead.

  • First picture is from August - big box blown across path. Other pictures from October 18th shows the same box, which has been in the street since August, now filled with rubbish! This household clearly needs instruction from the Council on correct recycling and informed of penalties for putting out rubbish early, or in their case leaving it out always. Not good enough BCC.
