Just minutes to clean up rubbish

2015-10-27 06:00

What is the problem with residents who, after their bins have been emptied, ignore the rubbish which has been left behind and littering the pavements after the homeless people have ravaged their bins?

Yes, I realise it is not the residents who put it there, but surely we should all have enough pride in our community to pick it up and put it back in our bins?

The dustbin men do not have time to clean up as they move down the street, yet it only takes a few minutes for homeowners to do so.

Just how many people take the time to clean out their dirty bins? I so often pass many bins which are filthy and very unhygienic.
