Opp pedestrian crossing

Reported via Android in the Spillages category anonymously at 11:00, Sunday 2 June 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 407580.

Bins are left on footpath. They're permanently left and restrict the pavement width. Assume shop bins as flats have space in rear car park - AS DO SHOP OWNERS! At present one bin is ierflowingand clearly not attended or checked. I wonder if they're abandoned and just get filled by passers by? CBC has stickered them multiple times and removed them also. But they appear again. Showing S or 5 and the number 44 or a few. None coincide with nearby houses or flats? I wonder why they are allowed to stay, plenty of car park & forecourt space for them to be off the public footpath if shop owned? This is a recurring issue and one which never gets fully resolved. Residents wouldn't dream of leaving their bins in public places and I wasn't aware it was acceptable or everyone would be doing this due to lack of space? I have no front garden and they have to be wheeled to the front of the property each week.
