Bins being removed from Byker Priory green. One bin for dog poo used to get used and filled to the top, wrote about getting a bigger one as it was only a normal household bin with a hole in the top but instead they removed it. So started using the general bin which was getting collected less and less until it was filling over and again removed a large bin. Now people are leaving poo bags where these bins used to be because they are pissed off that something that was keeping a well used area clean that can't cost that much was removed. I hope the solution to this consultation isn't like all the others, more private providers who make things worse.

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?
