Dear COL Information Officer,

Thank you very much. Further to my request, in addition to the number of bins, please can I also have the number of sites they are located at? E.g., if there are two bins both next to each other, this would be one site, but two bins.

Yours sincerely,

Jack Fifield

COL-EB-InformationOfficer, City of London Corporation
