Overflowing bin

Reported via iOS in the Street cleaning and litter category anonymously at 11:09, Thursday 5 August 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2915985.

This bin appears to get full before collection and the excess litter is on the pavement which is a health & safety problem to people walking past. Is it possible to get a larger bin? Also the bushes in this area are growing into the pavement making it impossible for people with prams and wheelchairs to use the pavement on yhis side of West Street.

  • I have checked and the bin has been emptied.

    In my opinion, this will not be resolved until a larger bin is installed so that this bin can accommodate the volume of rubbish in the area.

    This is due to many estates being built in West Street in the pass 2/3 years and there are more being built.

  • Please look at my last update as the larger bin has not been installed so the overflow happens constantly.

  • The bin is still not changed to larger bin so the probably remains and the bin is still overflowing.
