Misuse of bins

The bins on the street are aimed at those people who need a place to get rid of a wrapper or a can or general ‘street’ rubbish. Increasingly though we are finding them being used for household rubbish. The photos show one bin in town, near the old Ulster Bank that was filled up sometime on the night of the 30th December last, jammed to the gills with household rubbish. This is a deliberate act. and meant to one of our volunteers had to empty this bin so it could be used for its intended purpose. We can only assume the person or person who did this refuses to pay for their own bins and, if these bins were not available, they would happily dump their rubbish in a ditch or by the road.
