Tell us if a litter bin needs emptying
As part of our work to keep streets clean and tidy, the Council empties and maintains litter bins.
Frequency of collection varies between locations but is based on experience of usage for specific bins and locations. We will however, aim to remove discarded drug-related implements (e.g. syringes, needles and sharps) from the public land within 24-hours of them being reported.
Damaged bins will be repaired as quickly as possible and this depends on whether new components are needed from the manufacturers. For this reason it is not possible to be specific about the lead-time for repair.
