Bins being ‘stored’ on narrow footway outside the Granite Lodge

Reported via desktop in the Highway Enforcement category anonymously at 08:42, Thursday 19 May 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This ‘problem’ is becoming ‘contagious’.....

This house has a LARGE in/out driveway to put these bins, NOT selfishly on the narrow footpath of Lubbock Road.

  • They are no longer there, but will they reappear next week?

    Lubbock Road footpaths are simply NOT wide enough for the ‘storage’ of private householders’ waste and recycling bins and this ‘epidemic’ needs to be stopped with immediate effect....

  • Household waste collections are carried out on Wednesday along Lubbock Road. Domestic containers must be presented within arm's length of the public footway whenever that is possible.

    Should narrow driveways prevent presentation at the edge of curtilage (EOC) then the resident is permitted to use the footway on the scheduled day of collection.

    Each property will have to be assessed on a case by case basis as to whether they have a suitable EOC position. Veolia bin crews have also been reminded of their responsibilities and must endeavour not be leave emptied waste containers on the public footway.
