Lewisham Council say they will introduce smaller recycling bins in an area if more than 300 people ask for them. The smaller bins would not be compulsory, but those who want them would benefit, as would everyone else who will have to navigate fewer of them on their daily walks.
The Council recently introduced smaller black bins which cut waste and reduced pavement clutter without causing any problems, so this petition is designed to show the Council that there is a local demand for smaller bins.
In response to a suggestion by BCer Jonathan, we've set up a petition for readers who would like the Council to offer local residents smaller bins.
Many of our pavements are clogged with wheelie bins, which is ugly and often inconvenient to pedestrians, especially people with pushchairs or in wheelchairs.
If the petition gets to 300+ names, we'll pass it on to the Council.
