Bin stores and chutes are stinky, dingy places at the best of times.
When rubbish is placed in the wrong bin or left on the floor, the local authority will not empty them.
By working together, we can avoid this. Please:
- keep the floor clear of any rubbish
- put rubbish in the correct bins
- let us know if the bins are overflowing
- only put household waste in the bins
- break down cardboard boxes before putting them in the bin or bin chute to save space
- take large items to the household waste recycling centre or arrange for an appropriate removal
- don't force large items down bin chutes
- if the bin chute is blocked, let us know as soon as possible
It's a hassle to you and will come at a cost, so please dispose of rubbish responsibly.
Who looks after my bin store?
You local authority is responsible for disposing of the rubbish in your bin store.
What should I do is someone is fly tipping?
If you are aware of any fly tipping in your bin store, please let us know. It's helpful to know what items have been dumped, if there is a certain day or time you are noticing this happening and if you have any idea who may be responsible.
By sharing this information with us, we can take steps to preventing it happening again which keeps service charges down.
Who do I contact if the bins are overflowing or contaminated?
Please let us know if the bin store is over flowing or contaminated so we can ensure the bins are emptied and collections can start again as soon as possible!
What should I do if the bin chute is blocked?
The bin chute can easily get blocked or damaged by large or awkward items. This can cause unpleasant odours, fire hazards, and health risks for you and your neighbours.
Never force items down the bin chute and if it is blocked let us know as soon as possible.
