Dear Stoke on Trent City 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,

Dear Information Rights Team,

You say "The local authority does not provide any public/street recycling or general waste bins."

Is this to mean there are no bins on the street in Stoke-on-Trent?
I just went on to Google Street View and found two on the first road that I looked at, which displayed the city's crest.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely,

Jack Fifield

Kay Wright, Stoke on Trent City Council
