The long-awaited roll-out of wheelie bins across Wanstead is about to take place, residents have been told, with bins being delivered in the coming weeks.
All properties have been assessed by Redbridge officials for their suitability for wheelie bins, and those which are deemed not suitable will be receiving red bin bags instead.
The information circulated by Redbridge confirms that the borough collects the fifth highest amount of rubbish in England. We don’t believe we’ve seen a logical explanation for this, but perhaps wheelie bins might bring the borough into line with other councils
Intriguingly the leaflet promises a “bin amnesty” – for those go-ahead households who bought their own wheelie bins and now would be landed with two. Well, the council is offering to help take unwanted bins off their hands.
What will happen to the conventional bins houses have had for years and years is less clear. Guess they’ll be have to be thrown away. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes, huh?
