Litter bins

We provide, maintain and regularly empty litter bins within the county borough as follows:

  • both major and minor shopping centres sufficient to contain one day's litter
  • bins in council maintained car parks
  • bins at all mini recycling centres
  • bins in lay bys on strategic routes throughout the borough
  • dog fouling bins at known dog fouling black spots

We empty bins regularly to avoid overflow as follows:

  • Major shopping centres one to three times per day
  • Minor shopping centres daily before 9am
  • Lay bys on strategic routes daily before 8am
  • All other locations dependant on usage between one and seven times per week
