Recycling bins on Manchester Street, Kemptown

Reported by Alex Wilford at 17:35, Fri 29 May 2020

Issue: all of these various bins are labelled as recycling bins - there are no non-recycling bins here - and yet they are constantly overflowing with non-recycling waste. Due to its location on a thoroughfare to & from the beach, and because there aren't any non-recycling bins around here, and because they're not clearly labelled, these bins always get used for general waste. As a resident with this right outside the front door - it's not only an eyesore but it makes diligently washing and putting all our recycling into these bins completely pointless. The larger bin is labelled as for recycling only, but the label is half-obscured with graffiti. The smaller bins are also labelled for recycling but extremely ambiguously - on the front/sides they say for paper and cardboard - no glass, while on the tops they say 'mixed glass'. Which is it? Solutions: Could the labelling on the recycling bins be more clear? Could a new, clearly labelled NON-recycling general waste bin also be added at this spot? Could this whole corner possibly be smartened up? Sadly it's always such a mess that people use it as a dumping ground and you're constantly tripping over rubbish - not to mention that the corner behind it is a popular urination spot. Such a shame for residents AND beach visitors. Thank you!
