Hi, I had the same problem when I moved into my house, someone had taken my bins, so rang the council who told me it was down to the landlord or I could pay £37 for each bin. I certainly wasn't payin £74 for 2 bins that's just ridiculous.

I remember coming home years ago and finding my green bin had disappeared on the day the bin men had been. I rang up the council and the nice girl on the phone said maybe it had fallen into the wagon and arranged for a new bin to be sent out. That maybe about 10 years ago.
She seems to be getting 2 different answers I can see it from the landlords point - just say it happens every week ! but I also thought they would be part of the property so its not the tenants fault She is responsible for the upkeep of the interior of the house whereas as the landlord is responsible for the exterior Only people who seem to benefit is the council who want £44 per new bin !

I would have thought it to be between the bin user ie the tenant and the service provider, the council. Before we had wheelie bins we all had to buy our bins from the "chandlers" or similar. Our landlords never bought us a bin. Wheelie bins were then issued to us by the council not landlords.
