Gedling Borough councillors have now taken to social media and are asking people in their area to suggest locations for the new bins.

As well as new locations, people can also suggest a location where an existing bin is beyond repair and requires a replacement.

People have until Thursday (October 10) to suggest a location. They can either contact their councillor on Facebook or via email. Please use the subject ‘Litter Bins 2019’.

The council added: “Due to budget constraints, it will not be possible to install bins at every suggested location.”
