I am writing to put in a complaint about our rubbish bin problems especially at public holiday times.

People who are just passing by toss all their unwanted rubbish into our house bin including bags of dog waste, food and bottles, etc.

Our bin gets to overflowing and my husband keeps having to wash it out because it stinks and is so unhealthy.

The seagulls and other wildlife are taking advantage of all this rotten rubbish.

We have been left with no room for our own rubbish and we have had to drive it to the rubbish tip.

We have now decided we can no longer have a rubbish bin of our own outside and told the council to take it away.

We will just have to keep driving to the tip.

Something must be done about this.

It is not fair to people who live here in this town.
