Rubbish bins full and uncleared and excessive.

Reported via mobile in the Business bins left out early or after collection day category anonymously at 21:19, Tuesday 22 February 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3336199.

This rubbish and excessive number of waste bins have been like this for months and is a health hazard and eyesore in a conservation area.

  • Please note that a major contributor to this problem is a business, formerly known as the Nourish Restaurant, which has been closed for some considerable time.So this is not solely a household bin issue.

    Youra sincerely

  • Just to add that the wooden structure now in a state of disrepair we suspect has never had planning approval and is also an eyesore. Neighbours have reported seeing rats in this area.

  • Absolutely no change or improvement one month on from the original complaint.

  • Thank you for writing to residents requiring them not to leave their black bins outside of their courtyards on the main thoroughfare. The numbers have reduced but there are still 6 black bins left with no addresses on them plus the business bin, associated rubbish in a green curved box and the illegal wooden structure previously illegally used to house business waste. It is clear that the black bins can now be picked up by BANES waste services and reused for other residents elsewhere saving valuable council costs. Could you please do this immediately to help tidy up this confusing dreadful mess.

  • Thank you so much for getting the redundant household bins removed. We are very grateful. A couple of photos of remaining business bins/rubbish attached. Also yet another example of large lorries inappropriately using this route.
