Since there was a fire in the communal bin in Foundry Street some weeks ago, the lid is now heavy to open using the food pedal. A frail, elderly neighbour complained she is unable to open it. Furthermore It crashes shut when you release the pedal, making a very loud noise and waking one up if the bin is used at night. The lid urgenly needs to be repaired.

  • Despite myself and at least one other neighbour complaining to the council the bin remains in its damaged state.

  • More emails sent to the council since last report, yet still nothing has been done about the bin which is broken and loud and a real nuisance, especially in this hot weather.

  • The bin remains broken, loud and disturbs the peace.
