Bin Request Refused!

I recently received a request from residents about a rubbish bin that used to be attached close to a bus stop in Peacock Avenue which went missing. I requested that a new bin be fitted in its place….

Sadly the response I have received from the City Council is negative on the request.

Here is what has been written to me….” A member of team visited the location on a number of occasions and reports no major issues with regards to litter some cigarette butts were present but no more than the norm at most bus stops across the City.On the basis of the feedback reports back above a litter bin will not be fitted.”

I will gladly receive your comments and photos if you have any of the problem….my email address is  –
