Rubbish everywhere

Reported via desktop in the Street Cleansing category anonymously at 08:38, Saturday 4 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Council litter bin outside 43 Rafford Way, and opposite my property, has been overflowing all week with result that rubbish is blown all over the road and into neighbouring gardens, including my own! A daft idea to instal these bins in the first place. Please empty and remove them.

  • The bins remain in situ and are visited in the early morning by crows who poke about in the rubbish, which spills out, looking for food. The bins at the lower end of Rafford Way have been removed. Cannot understand why all the bins are not removed - they cause an ongoing litter problem.
