Is this breaking the law?

The recycling/refuse leaflets from EDDC, instruct you (in small print) to put bins on pavements.

The by-law still stands where it is an offence to obstruct the public footpaths.

This means we are breaking the law; also someone could fall over the bin and take you to court for compensation.

The leaflet also states kerbside recycling; you have the path with a kerbside; this means we are putting the wheelie bin in the gutter (kerbside).

This situation could cause damage to vehicles.

No bins on pavements.
