Bins and boxes on pavement

Reported in the Refuse & recycling category by Ray Scott at 09:30, Tue 8 June 2010

Sent to Brighton and Hove City Council less than a minute later

Moulsecoomb needs a friendly shake-up to reduce the ugly (and dangerous)clutter of wheelie bins and recycle boxes always left out on the pavement (much due to the student population probably not reading or understanding collection dates?) Why not try a Yellow Card sticker on bins left out. 3 yellows means a Red Card with a fine or bad publicity in the local newspaper, though a visible Yellow Card may be sufficient?

  • There is no evidence of follow-up. On Sundays the wheelie bins and black boxes are still out on the pavement from several houses near mine.
    It looks a disgrace. The previously suggested fines are not the heavy-handed reaction needed; just a friendly Yellow Card sticker would be better regarded by a sporting public (many of whom still have their English flags out despite the football defeat. I strongly urge some action to improve our degenerating neighbourhood, but softly, softly to start with!

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 21:37, Tue 6 July 2010

  • I'm satisfied that there was a response- from 2 Councillors, followed by a Council letter to all house-holders in my street.
    There are still some offenders who leave their bins/boxes/bags out at all times. I will take a photo on Sunday and post it if they have not responded to the Council memo.
