Bins aren’t being emptied and litter everywhere

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The public bin at the end of Sandford road by the bus stop as well as the bin by St Mark’s Church as not being emptied regularly enough. This is a recent change. They are full and overflowing so rubbish going everywhere and dumped at the bus stop. Why has the regularity of the bin emptying changed? The bins at the station are being emptied then these ones would be emptied but that is happening less and less.

  • This rubbish has been at the bus stop since Thursday. I’m surprised that when the bin was emptied by the bus stop the refuge collector didn’t think it appropriate to clear this eye sore. I do appreciate its very sad and disheartening to see people leave such rubbish but it would be good if refuge collectors were trained to pick up all rubbish around when emptying the bin
