The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea has removed all bins from its residential streets in an attempt to reduce litter. From now on, passers-by will only be allowed to dispose of litter in busy areas, including shopping and tourist streets. A spokesman for the council, explaining the thinking behind the decision, said businesses were dumping large quantities of waste in the bins. While in a trial in one road, officials reported only a very slight increase in littering when the bins were removed.
