Quote:The area has been visited and they have been advised to keep the bin locked.
In an ideal world all commercial and residential properties would have a secure waste area, which can be accessed by a refuse vehicle.
Looking at the area, removal of the bin and replacing it with a bag collection would not be an improvement.
There are a number of other bins on the highway in the vicinity we would have to also take action against these as well.
We will keep an eye on the area as best as possible if the situation deteriorates we will take the appropriate action.

Quote:Thank you for your email and to let us know about your concerns about our clinical bin on Trinity Street. While I agree it is not a beautiful thing to look at it is necessary to have it to contain our clinical waste which is packed in special bags in best way. We follow the guidelines for where and how clinical waste must be stored and by these guidelines we can have clinical waste stored outside the premises. We put just special bags into the bin and the rest of clinical waste which is dangerous to environments is kept inside the premises and collects with another company.
The reasons we have the lockable bin outside are: The company which collects only clinical waste from hospitals and clinics asked for it to be able to have access to the bin even if the clinic is closed; As we produce more waste due to size of clinic we need bigger bin and last thing because we have done changes inside the premises we have lack of space. The bin is big I agree but it is still on my land as I have the basement which is bigger than the ground-floor building and people with pushchair can still pass the bin easily as I watched one did that. This bin we have got from the company has problem with the lock and I have called the company twice since we received that to swap it and they have promised to do that as soon as possible this week.
I hope I could answer all your questions and please do not hesitate to contact me if still there are some quarries. As a good gesture and of course because you are one of our neighbors I would like to invite you for a view of our new updated premises and to have a free examination and scale and polish with one of our dentists. If interested please call us on 02074073883 and you can make an appointment with myself.
