There are three bins outside Southgate Tube Station which have been taped up and therefore essentially out of order for almost three months now. Can we please get an idea of if the Council are looking to either:
1- Remove the Bins entirely
2- Fix the bins and make them fully operational
Clarity if possible.
Cllr. Stephanos Ioannou
Dear Cllr Ioannou
Thank you for your enquiry regarding the recycling bins placed at Southgate Tube Station. We are in the process of removing the recycling units from outside train stations, the team advised that the ones sited at Southgate Tube Station are bolted to the ground. We have arranged for a team to assist with the removal and the units should be removed next week.
We had received a request to remove all the recycling units from outside stations for safety reasons, the units are in poor state and we are unable to repair them . At the moment we have no replacements but are looking for different more robust bin types which we hope to re-introduce in the coming months with the agreement of TFL.
