Recycling bins to go from Brockley Road

Lewisham Council report that the Royal Mail have instructed them to remove all the recycling bins currently parked outside the sorting office on Brockley Road. They say:

Royal Mail have instructed the Council to remove all recycling bins inc. textiles from Brockley sorting office in 7 days. The recycling bins will be removed next Monday (17th) on a permanent basis. with no plans to re-site them. 

The Council believe the most likely reason behind the decision is the problem of fly tipping by the bins. When BC first started, the bins were a real eyesore in the middle of the high street, but significant effort went in to improving their impact and the setup had seemingly worked pretty well in recent years.
