'Empty bins more often'

SOME bins in Henley are not being emptied regularly enough, claims the Deputy Mayor.

Councillor Will Hamilton carried out a survey following complaints that some bins in the town regularly overflow with rubbish.

Speaking at a meeting of Henley Town Council, he said: “We did a survey of the 22 bins and the ones in the town centre are being emptied daily.

“But we found there are bins in Ancastle Green, King’s Road, Norman Avenue and Greys Road that are emptied only every four days, which isn’t good enough.”

Afterwards, he said his findings would be reported to South Oxfordshire District Council and its contractor Biffa with a request that all bins are emptied daily.

In October, Councillors David Eggleton and Kellie Hinton told how they were receiving a growing number of complaints about overflowing bins.

They named Greys Road, Greys Hill, New Street, Reading Road and Marlow Road as problem areas.
