Wheelie bins, bags and boxes of rubbish littered on the pavement outside number 6 Oaklands Road. The bins are never taken in to the garden and the residents are increasingly placing loose rubbish on the pavement next to them. The rubbish and bins cause an obstruction to people walking past, people on mobility scooters and visually impaired people.

This is a persistent problem as the residents of that property do not always put their rubbish directly in the bins and never remove the bins from the pavement after they’ve been emptied. It causes an obstruction and is also unsightly, smelly and unhygienic.

  • I see the black bags have gone thanks you but would you please inform the residents to remove their bins from the foot path after collection tomorrow in the same way the rest of the borough do.

    They have left them on the footpath for many months yet have plenty of room on their garden.

    Thank you

  • The residents continue to leave their bins in the street. Has anyone official spoken to them or the landlord for breaching the law?
