“Please don’t leave cardboard and other material that can be sold or reused on the pavement,” ward councillor Elizabeth Brunette asked today (15 April). “The City’s recycling depot in Rosmead Avenue is open until 8 pm for residents and businesses to drop off unwanted items.”

Brunette also asked residents not to leave bins outside overnight.

Bins left standing on the pavement are thought to attract vagrants to the suburb.
