Walking into a wheelie bin or tripping over a recycling bag or container is not a daily challenge for the average pedestrian, so awareness levels amongst the public is low.
Obstructions that block pavements have a far greater impact on blind and partially sighted people than they do for other sections of the community. Each and every wheelie bin, bin bag or recycling bag that obstructs a pavement increases the risk of accidents and injury. They are a trip hazard and where hard surfaces come into sharp contact with skin, they can lead to physical injuries.
