Wheelie bin safety

Wheelie good advice!

Help prevent bin fires in your local area by following these tips:

  • Put your wheelie bin out early the morning of collection, rather than late at night.
  • Take your bin from the kerbside as soon as possible after collection.
  • Help out your neighbour – bring their bin in for them if needed.
  • Don’t overfill your bin - make sure the lid will close.
  • Store your bin away from your house but within the boundary of your property
