Bins again

July 22nd, 2007 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · No Comments · Politics

I am starting to doubt what we were told about bins at the Broadfield Forum the other day.

One piece of evidence for bins causing rubbish seemed quite compelling: bins were removed from half the memorial gardens and the half without bins has less litter than the half with bins. This was in addition to the news that bins removed for Liz’s visit were not replaced and littering got better as a result.

I had this in mind when I was in town today and I noticed that there are actually a lot of bins around, and the Memorial Gardens are still well supplied with bins.

Not only that, but we were told that the amenities department were on a mission to reduce or remove bins in the neighbourhoods, but I also noticed that the Broadfield Barton has a row of nice new bins where there was only a single full one previously.

I am not sure what the policy really is now. Looking around I think I can see more bins and not fewer. It may be that I have not really been looking properly before, but it looks like more bins to me.
