Eysore Bins

Reported in the Rubbish (refuse and recycling) category by Kenn Winter at 11:29, Fri 28 April 2017

Sent to Kirklees Borough Council 2 minutes later

Zion Close, Lindley's one-time bin store from which the screening was removed a couple of years back is an increasingly abused & unsightly problem area - blighting the recently landscaped pathway through Zion Churchyard. Warning letters re Littering need sending to those with bins at this spot (via Kirklees Neighbourhood Homes ) & the Shopkeepers - and psrhaps the bin store screening should be re-instated ?

  • I've asked the Area Bins Supervisor to raise this with Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing.

  • Whilst a Mattress has been removed ... where's the Bin Store to screen the bins - it looks like a plastic Stonehenge.

  • The bins are still out on the street - albeit the matress has been removed, , and the former bin store's concrete base has ben taken up & the site seeded with grass seed. A solution would be to re-site the dozen or so domestic bins - either next to the electricity sub-station behind the Lidget St shops by agreement with the Electricity Company , on some new flagstones to replace the existing broken ones ) , or in the little used clothes drying area opposite the sub-station ( owned by Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing ) ... it's quite clear seen on-site.

  • Residents who left bins out have been identified. warned & some have been confiscated - having to pay fines if they want bins returned ; firm action, more please : & thanks for ticketing the Untaxed parked cars. But fly tipping persists - today sat 26 august, bank holiday weekend, there's another Mattress tipped ... & still some bins. Kirklees Council spent £7,000 putting a footpath & planting in the adjoining former Chapel Graveyard - so this " entrance " should be respected by locals. Credit to the Council for trying to make the place attractive.

    State changed to: Fixed
