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.
•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.
