Wheelie bin fires

Nuisance wheelie bin fires are a problem in some neighbourhoods, typically causing damage of up to £1,650 including damage to buildings, cleaning up and the cost of replacement.

To keep your wheelie bin safe, don’t:

  • put out your bin until it is due for collection
  • overfill the bin or leave loose waste around it
  • store in close proximity to a building
  • allow bins or waste to block escape routes
  • store waste by windows or doors
