FOCUS ROADS – these are roads that are recognized to have problems with advanced bin bags. The Warden has to walk these immediately after the refuse crews have picked up the weekly refuse. This is to verify that all rubbish has been picked and therefore any subsequent bin bags left out are advanced.
