Issue Summary

overfilled bins causing health hazard


Latest Update

30/08/2018 11:52:19 Wiltshire Council housing and waste officers are investigating this matter currently, and attempting to find a solution - made more complex by (a) each property having steps up on to the pavement (the council cannot therefore instruct the tenants to tidy their bins off the pavement) and (b)some of the properties are privately owned and a process of establishing who owns which properties is still being established. Officers hope to be able to update on progress in September

CATG Action / Recommendation


14 wheelie bins outside properties in Mill Stream Approach Salisbury. This is just before Swimming Pool Bridge as you drive over the river to get to the Coach Park.These bins which are an eyesore taking up room on the pavement have not been emptied for weeks possibly because the contents are mixed and not general waste or recyclables. There is a possibility that Novichok is lurking in these bins and for health and safety they should be emptied and cleaned out. I suggest this quantity of bins could be removed and replaced by large wheelie bins which could be placed in a recess in the wall and then not cause an issue for passing pedestrians.
