The recycling bin now located on the corner of Prince Regent Street until last week was located around on Madeira Street (Portland Street End).

The other recycling bins have been emptied whilst there is more and more waste appearing in this bin. As Prince Regent street did not have any recycling bins previously, it may have been moved here wihtout the councils knowledge and so being missed during the collection.

Additionally there is a dumped wardrobe that has very recently appeared. It may be that this is legitimate and awaiting collection however the doors can be found dumped further down the street near other landfill bins.
