A GENTLE REMINDER - BINS LEFT OUT ON THE HIGHWAY
The following procedure MUST be followed by residents when placing wheeled bins out for collection.
The majority of people do follow the procedure correctly, but unfortunately a number of people do not. If you are one of those who do, thank you. If you do not, then here is a reminder of Warrington Borough Council's precedure regarding Waste Collections:
1. Place your wheeled bin out on your normal collection day, or no earlier than 5pm the preceding day.
2. ALL refuse must be placed inside your wheeled bin.
3. Do not leave your wheeled bin in a position that will cause obstruction to other highway users or residents.
4. Return your wheeled bin to your property as soon as possible after collection has taken place - and no later than the end of your collection day.
You are responsible for the return and storage of your wheeled bins, and the Borough Council is supported in this view by both the Police and Fire Service. Wheeled bins that are left unattended are often targeted in arson attacks or used in anti social behaviour incidents.
We hope that you will see that any minor inconvenience to yourselves will be more than outweighed by the increased safety and improved aesthetics of your local environment.
Thank you for your co-operation.
