Bigbelly bins arrive around the Borough
Large capacity, solar-powered Big belly street bins are being installed across the borough following a successful trial in the town centre.
They are a quality looking piece of street furniture. Not having open tops they cannot be overfilled like normal bins with rubbish falling or being blown out. They have special containers for people’s cigarette butts.
Well done to Stuart Collins, the Cabinet member responsible for the waste service who is always open to new ideas to improve the service and change people’s litter dropping habits.
