This bin is always overflowing and is piled up with dog faeces bags it warm weather the smell is unbearable Living by this bin I have always Collected litter thrown down on the ground when bin overflows but am reluctant in these Covid days Rodents also are seen going over the rubbish The dog poo bags are sometimes open and attract flies I have spoken to the men that empty the bin 3 times a week they know it is a problem and suggest removing the bin as then residents take their rubbish home It is at the top of Norman ave which although a private road is used as a cut through for Henley college students and now trinity has opened its gate opposite the bin I believe it is a health and safety hazard and I will be escalating this matter if it is not urgently addressed It cannot be right in the current climate to have rubbish and dog faeces piling up close to residential properties and a school

  • Hello unfortunately the bins continues to frequently overflow - I believe it is being emptied more often but many college student and resident walk past this bin and so it will always overflow unless emptied daily or removed

  • Hello this bin is a health hazard it attracts rodents and foxes I have frequently part emptied the bin when overflowing and picked up the waste inc dog faeces bags that lie around the bin But I am no longer happy to do this during Covid times The bins is inadequate for the volume of traffic that passes - Trinity school traffic uses the gate opposite the bin Many Henley college student walk up Norman Avenue from the train station daily and other resident walk up and down Norman Avenue and along the alley way and church street The bin is used for rubbish and as a dog poo bin I am extremely unhappy and suggest the bin is removed as it could never accommodate the rubbish of the passing population If the bin is removed I believe the problem will be removed
