There are two small waste bins on lamp posts outside the two entrances to our school. These waste bins are routinely overflowing with bags of dog excrement, food waste and litter causing a serious health and safety concern for the students and staff of our special needs school. These bins should either be removed or emptied far more frequently.

  • Both are still full up and overflowing. The council needs to empty these bins more often.

  • This problem has not been fixed. The bins are again overflowing. Emptying the bins once a week is not enough. The dog excrement bags fall out causing a serious health and safety issue for our students, staff and passers by. The bins need to be removed from outside our school or emptied on a much more frequent basis.

  • We ask that new and separate occurrences of issues are logged as new reports to avoid conflicting information or updates and ensure the information is passed promptly to our contractor. Please log the issue via https://fix.bromley.gov.uk as a new report using the map marker and description to detail where the issue is located. Please note that if the location you wish to mark is already occupied by a pin, you can hide the map pins via the button in the bottom left or you can click a nearby free section of the map to drop your green reporting pin so that all other yellow pins indicating existing reports disappear, you can then click and drag your green pin to the correct location and continue submitting your report.

  • Hi LBB. This isn’t a ‘new’ occurrence, it’s a continuation from the bins not being emptied last week - either the frequency that they are emptied needs increasing or we need some bigger bins. Thanks.
