Freo's View


Posted in fremantle by freoview on June 23, 2011

Following up from an earlier post on this blog this week I checked the number of rubbish bins in the West End this morning on my way to the Moore&Moore cafe for my hit of caffeine, and the lack of them is quite staggering. Between Little High Street and Henry Street there is only a single bin in High Street. There are no bins in Cliff, Mouat and Henry Street between Phillimore Street and the Esplanade at all. I did not check Packenham Street, but fear it might be the same there. That is a large area that has got a single garbage bin and that is not sufficient.

This is the University of Notre Dame area, where thousands of students use the streets every day and have nowhere to dispose off their rubbish. Time for a change COF!!

    Wishful thinking but not the reality I observe, Rob.

    Some councils operate on the theory that a no-bin approach works better than an over-flowing bin situation; in that most people will take their rubbish with them rather than throw it on the ground.
