Fines for bin misuse

Fines for bin misuse

PEOPLE should be fined for dumping household waste in public bins in Henley, says a town councillor.

David Eggleton says he continues to discover bins in the town overflowing with household waste, including even letters with people’s addresses.

He said: “The worst areas are Friday Street and Reading Road. 

“You’d expect the bins to be full of sweet wrappers or the occasional shopping bag but not ketchup bottles and cat litter. It’s blatant misuse.

“We are looking at having bigger bins in certain areas but if we stopped people dumping household waste the bins we have now would probably be sufficient.”

He said fines should be imposed on offenders as they are in Reading.

In October Councillor Kellie Hinton and Cllr Eggleton criticised South Oxfordshire District Council for not emptying bins often enough.
