If a public bin is full, or already overflowing, please find another or take your litter or dog waste home to dispose of responsibly.
Public litter and dogs bins are emptied regularly, so, if on occasion they are full or overflowing this means there is a problem.
Whether the issue relates to staffing or vehicles, please be assured that the Local Authority will be doing everything possible to ensure that the bins are collected as soon as possible. Dropped litter along the way, jam-packed and over-flowing bins are an eye-sore and are more difficult to empty, therefore slowing the job down.
Everyone appreciates that this is a Local Authority service that is paid for, but where unforeseen circumstances arise, as they do in all our lives and in many businesses, please be thoughtful and sensible and respect where you live.
