 Wheelie bin replacement
Topic Originator: DBP  
Date:   Sun 23 Feb 12:24

Our bin blew over in all that recent wind and the bin lid had snapped off.

Will fife council replace that if I phone up or will they try to make me pay for a new one (and if it's the latter, is there anything I can say to get it at no extra cost - give them enough money already!)?

Who owns the bin? You or the council?

Please don't book me Admin, it will ruin my life.

Bins are replaced or repaired free.One of mine disappeared and when I phoned she told me bins sometimes go right into the refuse lorry.Another time a damaged lid was repaired.

They'll replace it for free. Don't know what they do in Dunfermline but in Edinburgh they would give the resident a new bin and take the old one away for repair.

Most of the blue lids seem to break off on one side. A couple of meccano strips secured mine.
