Q. Can you get seagull-proof bins?

Thank you for your feedback.

I'm pleased to hear that you are now using the benches again, following the clean up!

We have had problems with seagulls this year - earlier in the year we worked with Fife council to deal with two gulls who were attacking Library users and stealing food. Since then other gulls have (unsurprisingly) moved in to the area outside the Library. The bins in the bike shed are lidded but there is an open-sided one closer to the Main Library entrance. I agree that anything we can do to reduce mess and prevent the seagulls from accessing waste food is helpful. Please leave this with me and I will follow up with colleagues in Estates.

In the meantime please do not hesitate to get back in touch with any other feedback or suggestions.
