New bins for Bargates and Christchurch High Street

Christchurch High Street and Bargates will see litter bins replaced by mid-September, with replacements beginning on 27 August.

Christchurch Borough Council is working with the Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) to replace the current bins with larger 240 litre wheelie-type bins. Fewer bins will be installed, although their visibility will be more prominent within the area. The bins will also reduce the need for using bin bags and liners. The new bins collectively will increase the waste capacity in the High Street and Bargates by 20%.

Jonathan Ross, Property, Engineering and Car Parks Manager for Christchurch and East Dorset Councils, said, “Many of the current litter bins on the High Street and in Bargates are in a poor condition and need replacing, so I am pleased that ten new bins will be installed by mid-September.

“The new, larger bins were chosen by councillors to meet the needs of the borough and have animal proof lids. This should have a positive impact on keeping the High Street and Bargates clear of litter.

“Christchurch is a beautiful place which is enjoyed by both residents and visitors, and is especially busy during the summer months. We hope that the public continue to take care of Christchurch by using these new bins responsibly.”

Bin replacement work will begin on 27 August.
