Dear Merton Borough Council,
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

Dear Charles Baker,

Please can I have a PDF version of this, the formatting of the table you've sent appears to have gotten messed up in transit, so I am having trouble reading it.
