For terraced properties without a front garden, wheelie bins (and recyclables) should be presented for collection at an unlocked back gate (or gateway) which opens onto the alleyway. If, the householder wishes to keep the back gate locked it should be presented on the alleyway side of that gate. The contractor should return the wheeled bin (or box) to wherever it was presented. If, for whatever reason, wheelie bins end up on the street they should be returned to the back garden as soon as possible after collection.
