Wheelie bin fire safety advice

Protect your home and help prevent bin fires in your local area by following these tips:

  • Put your wheelie bin out early on the morning of waste collection, rather than late at night the day before
  • Take your bin from the kerbside as soon as possible after collection
  • Help out your neighbour – bring their bin in for them if needed
  • Don’t overfill your bin - make sure the lid will close
  • Store your bin away from your house but within the boundary of your property and ideally out of public sight
