Although residents are slowly becoming aware of this, there are still many people who have not appreciated that the protocols for bin positioning have changed. Accordingly, we shall shortly be using a sticker which will be placed on bins where the handles are not facing the road. The stickers will say ‘Our new vehicles need bin handles facing the road please’. As you will appreciate there is not much room on a sticker to get the message across but we feel this wording is as good as any in conveying the need for re-positioning and the reason for so doing.

Very many thanks.
