Wheelie bin obstructing pavement
Reported via mobile in the Obstruction to Highway category anonymously at 09:15, Sunday 6 August 2023
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4862556.
Once again 30 Birchwood Avenue’s wheelie bin has been left out on the pavement after the non-recyclable waste collection on Friday.
This time it was again placed under the tree nearest the junction of Gordon Road with Birchwood Avenue for collection and left next to 30 Birchwood Avenue’s gate onto Gordon Road after the collection, where it remains, causing pedestrians to have to walk on the uneven tarmac under the tree to pass between the wheelie bin and the tree. An accident waiting to happen, especially in the dark.
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

The wheelie bin has now been moved to its original position under the tree nearest the junction of Gordon Road with Birchwood Avenue, presumably by someone wishing to pass along the Gordon Road pavement between the tree and 30 Birchwood Avenue’s boundary wall. It is now less of a hazard to pedestrians but 30 Birchwood Avenue’s occupants should still have removed it after the non-recyclable waste collection on Friday.

The wheelie bin was eventually removed from its position under the tree nearest the junction of Gordon Road with Birchwood Avenue but has now been returned to it ready for today’s non-recyclable waste collection and is therefore once again obstructing the pavement.
This wheelie bin should be placed on 30 Birchwood Avenue’s front curtilage for the non-recyclable waste collections rather than obstructing the pavement for days on end.

It should have been stated above that Birchwood Avenue’s next non-recyclable waste collection will actually be on Saturday 2 September. Presumably 30 Birchwood Avenue’s wheelie bin (which is so full that the lid will not close) will not be allowed to be left in its current position obstructing the pavement until then?

The wheelie bin has been removed, hopefully until the next non-recyclable waste collection on Saturday 2 September.

The wheelie bin has been placed between the tree nearest the junction of Gordon Road and Birchwood Avenue and 30 Birchwood Avenue’s boundary wall, completely obstructing the pavement for pedestrians.
Presumably this has been done in the erroneous belief that the non-recyclable waste collection which took place on Saturday 2 September will be taking place today, but whatever the reason, the pavement must not continue being repeatedly obstructed by 30 Birchwood Avenue’s wheelie bin.

The wheelie bin has now been moved to a position by 30 Birchwood Avenue’s boundary wall, presumably by a pedestrian wishing to use the pavement.
