Cotswold District Council is requesting residents to avoid overloading bins because it increases the risk of them splitting and also creates problems for crews handling them.
Recently there has been an increase in the number of bins splitting because residents have loaded them with too much heavy waste - this has been particularly noticeable when filling garden waste bins. When crews collect such heavy bins, there is a tendency for the lip on the front to split during the mechanical emptying process, resulting in the bin falling into the back of the vehicle. Obviously this means that residents have to obtain a new bin, and the Council has to fund a replacement.
Additionally, the crews themselves are more prone to muscular pains if they handle overloaded bins, and this can lead to long-term complications and, potentially, delays in the service. For this reason, crews will be unable to empty bins if they consider them to be too heavy.
Cllr Sue Coakley, the Cabinet Member for Environment at CDC, says,
“I would urge residents to make sure that their filled bins can be easily wheeled to the kerbside by a person with average strength and build. If it is difficult for people to move their bins to the kerbside then it will clearly be difficult for the crews to handle them, and they may have to refrain from emptying them. The health and safety of the Ubico workers is a prime concern, and we should do everything we can to help them work effectively and efficiently.”
Cotswold District Council has finished it Development plan for 2011 to 2031. Scroll down for Willersey detail on their plan document while Wyvhavon in November 2018 is still asking for comments. As Broadway is close to Willersey, any developments there could have an affect on Willersey.
