road or left on the road indefinitely without being used. Containers are only to be on the road for a
maximum of 14 days.

safety, congestion and or amenity if these issues are raised in complaints to WCC. Failure to comply with
such a request may result in WCC undertaking the move or relocation at your expense. See the
