Foxes empty bin, need different type of bin (postbox style)

Reported via mobile in the Street Cleansing category anonymously at 09:45, Mon 8 November 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

A fox keeps jumping in and emptying the bin at the bus stop all over the footpath. I have cleaned it numerous times, but my wife having got home late one night caught the fox actually in it. I suggest we need a different type of bin, postbox style. Unfortunately people pull up by the bin and dump food such as McDonald’s which the foxes obviously like, which we can’t stop, but we can stop the foxes accessing easily.

  • To expand upon the update made on 19th November 2021. The Council has requested that Veolia replace this post mounted bin with a larger covered free standing litter bin. Veolia are currently waiting on delivery of new stock so the existing bin will be swapped upon arrival.
