A quick check of the salt bins in the Westfield area yesterday revealed that most have salt in them. In some cases this has been left over from previous years – last winter was particularly mild.
Most had been used as litter bins and several had been vandalised with the lid hinges broken in many cases.
The Council promised to complete a review of it’s salt bins in September but nothing seems to have come of this. No attempt was made during the summer to recover the bins for maintenance. We hope the new Council will order that the bins be refurbished in the spring.
In the meantime – before we get the inevitable snow – the litter needs to be removed and the bins topped up where necessary.
