Residents against Bristol City Councils proposed introduction of smaller wheelie bins as standard sign now

In a bid to force residents to recycle more waste in order to meet Government targets, Bristol City Council has decided to replace current 240 litre wheelie bins with 180 litre bins thus reducing bin capacity by 60 litres. Collections, however will remain fortnightly.
We believe that the introduction of the smaller bin offering 3/4 of the capacity of the current standard bin will cause many or all of the following problemswhich the Council has not adequately considered or taken action to prevent, consequently resulting in a significant deterioration in the quality of the environment in which we live;
1. Increased general litter.
2. The hygienic disposal of nappies, animal faeces, cat litter etc.
3. The hygienic disposal of items such as incontinence pads, catheters
soiled dressings etc.
4. The hygienic disposal of soiled sanitary protection.
5. Increased presence of vermin
6. Increased fly-tipping.
We would ask the Council to be mindful of its duty to provide services in the interest of its customers, the electorate. We would remind the Council that it serves the Community. The Community does not serve it. Having paid, by way of local taxation, the Community has the right to expect that the service provided by the Council, is best suited to meet its needs. Many families who do recycle are finding it difficult to comply with current restrictions on the use of the standard bin. If either the Council or the Community perceives a need for change it should be implemented only after full consultation - as is the democratic way
