Household bins theft

Under the freedom of information act please could you tell me how many reports of theft you have had of household waste bins in the following calendar years:

  • 2014
  • 2015
  • 2016
  • 2017
  • 2018 to date. 

If your council does not record reports of theft please provide me with details of the total number of requests for replacement household waste bins broken down by the same time periods. 

How regularly did the council collect household waste bins (i.e. weekly, fortnightly) over the same periods, so - 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 to date. 

Our response


Eden District Council does not maintain a record of theft of bins as we don’t supply bins to householders. Eden District Council does not maintain a record of request for replacement bins for the same reason. Eden District Council provides a weekly sack collection service.
