Southport Residents have no right to complain over unemptied wheeliebins October 1st, 2012 admin Latest News Shares Comments Southport Residents have no right to complain over unemptied wheeliebins Many residents across Southport continue to overfill their wheeliebins yet complain when the council refuse to empty them. A local councillor said It’s about time residents took responsibility of their waste and abided by the council rules that state: All wheeled bins must be presented with the lid closed. Closed lids: •prevent access to the contents of the bin by vermin, other animals and/or birds •reduce windblown littering •avoid damage to container lids caused by the lifting mechanism •make it safer for operatives using the lifting/emptying mechanism •help to prevent injuries caused by lids, which can hit staff in the face whilst being manoeuvred during the collection/emptying process Residents shouldn’t complain if their bins are left unemptied if overfilled like in the photographs above.
