Broad Lane North – Rubbish Bin Now Replaced!

A much used rubbish bin located at the top of the Perry Hall Bridge in Broad Lane North which suddenly disappeared, has been replaced by the City Council and is doing its job again!

When the bin disappeared,  this caused much consternation by users of the pedestrian footpath that links Broad Lane North & Broad Lane South, and the tow path alongside the Wyrley & Essington canal.

Councillor Phil Bateman explained at the time that  ” The loss of the bin at this location has caused much concern for Local People. Dog walkers use the bin to drop their ‘dog pooh’ in after they have cleaned up after their dogs. It was the dog walkers that first alerted the Councillors that the bin had disappeared. Then others started to ask where it had gone!

Following  contact with the  Public Realm it was agreed it needed replacement.

I am happy to inform you that the rubbish bin at the top of the Perry Hall Bridge in Broad Lane North has now been replaced. It was originally removed by Wolverhampton City Council because it was unsafe. The Good news is that it is now back in situation and making its contribution to keeping the local environment clean.
