I received this today in response to my email/blog entry dated 1st October. I know you will have been waiting for it with baited breath as was I:
“Dear Ms Hilton
Thank you for your email dated 01 October 2012.
Your request for the litter bin to be placed on Abbeydale Road at the end of Bannerdale Road has been passed to our private sector contractor Amey for consideration.
During the first 2 to 3 years of the contract of the Highways PFI program, Our private sector contactor Amey will be providing 1000 additional litter bins. they will be discussing the location of these new litter bins with each Community Assembly area.
In future if you believe you have identified a location where the provision of an additional litter bin would be beneficial then you can suggest this location via our Online forms.
Tel: 0114 273 4567
Reply from me – well just now actually:
“Dear new council contractor Streets Ahead
Thank you so much for your response which essentially says that my request for a litter bin near House School and a bus stop is now on a list.
Imagine my delight at this news. I thought I was already on a list for bin consideration and now I must be on another one. This is terrific. Double the chances for success!
You also mention the community assembly. Fortunately I already follow their social media activity so I will put my request through them too to triple the bin likelihood.
I am also thrilled to hear that there is now a specific online bin location request form. I shall bookmark this immediately. But I will miss our chatty email bin related dialogue.
P.S. Any news from Nick yet?
