No outdoor bins

We the undersigned petition the council to We would like the council to provide us with either personal or communal outdoor bins for rubbish disposal to prevent vermin.

The current rubbish disposal situation in Bootle in particular is ridiculous. We have no wheelie bins and instead have to but our bin bags out on our streets once a week for collection, many people put them out throughout the week as their is no where to store the rubbish other than our homes which causes them to smell. This issue has caused issues with vermin infestation on the affected streets, rats in particular. The rubbish on the streets attracts animals such as birds and rodents who rip open the bags allowing the food scraps and all other domestic rubbish to fill the streets. This then attracts rats who then eat the food, nest nearby and even come into our homes. When the rats do find there way into our homes they eat our food, they chew through our clothes and furniture for nesting materials and they even nest and die in crevices in and around our homes.
