Wheelie bins in Derby to get parking tickets

Residents in parts of Derby may find parking ticket-style stickers slapped on their wheelie bins this week if they leave them out on the pavement - but will luckily avoid any fines.

With 17% of the bins in the selected ward, Abbey, permanently left out on the pavement, the council hopes the awareness campaign will reduce this figure.

Derby City Council wants to get the message across that bins left out on the streets obstruct pavements and aid burglars.

Cabinet member for environment and direct services councillor Sara Bolton said: “We’re hoping that this somewhat unusual method will grab people’s attention and make them take notice of this serious issue.”

The council has not put a timescale on the initiative, and may look at using it in other areas of the city if it proves effective.
