Vanishing recycling bins... #1082123

Just wondering if anyone knows the reason why the recycling bins for plastic, cans and bottles have been taken away from Upton Sainsburys - and possibly other supermarkets, though I haven't been to check? I used the plastics one regularly, though the kerbside collection is okay for some plastic, as well as cans and glass. This is not likely to encourage people to recycle - I thought that was a priority. Can't see anything on the council's Facebook page to explain it - but maybe it's not the council's responsibility Any ideas?

I know some JS (and possibly other) stores have had to temporarily stop the recycling facilites due to the insanity of people who just pile stuff up in and around the bins even though it is obvious there is no room. I don't know if this could be the same at Upton. This is Birmingham but Nottingam and others have had to do the same.

I doubt it's directly to do with covid as it's only happened very recently - the random dumping issue could be the cause, I suppose. Health & Safety, rats, fire risk etc. Nowhere near as bad as the images in the link, thank goodness, but annoying!

I asked at customer services in Sainsburys this morning; she confirmed that the absence of bins was to do with increased levels of fly tipping, and she had no idea if they would be returning. Thanks a bunch, fly-tippers... that just makes it harder for people who genuinely want to recycle.

Look in the History section or ask questions in the History Information request section.
