How on earth is the Council going to tackle increasing rubbish when existing bins are removed and then replaced with fewer bins. In Walbottle there used to be at least 6 bins that I can recall, now these have been replaced with 2 bins. One at the bus stop on the village green and one on Hexham Road. There are now no bins on Hexham Road through Blucher and none outside the High School and none outside either primary school in the village. As a result Hexham Road is now worse than it has ever been. The pavements outside the primary schools will also now be strewn with rubbish. The problem will not be solved by introducing fewer but bigger bins. The existing smaller bins used to fill up quickly.

is there to be action in either replacing the bins that were removed from the green spaces or having a plan for the removal of the rubbish that is now present. simply expecting people to walk further to a bin is a non starter and is a disgrace if this the policy going forward. i live near kenton school -yes one of the biggest schools in england there was 5 bins around enterences on the south side, all been removed with only one at a bus stop 50m away on one side of the main road. the kids have now taken to throwing the rubbish on the ground or using the large plannter as a bin. can someone take ownership if the issue please?
