Dog bin causes an­other stink

Argyllshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A DOG poo bin on the Cri­nan Canal path has been left over­flow­ing once again with walk­ers say­ing it is an ‘aw­ful sight’.

The Ar­gyll­shire Ad­ver­tiser con­tacted Scot­tish Canals, which said the bin was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil. How­ever, the coun­cil stated the bin was ac­tu­ally to be emp­tied by of­fi­cials from Scot­tish Canals.

A spokesper­son from Scot­tish Canals said: ‘The bin pic­tured is man­aged by Scot­tish Canals. We have in­creased the fre­quency of this bin be­ing emp­tied but it ap­pears an over­sight on the part of our con­trac­tor has re­sulted in the build-up of waste shown.

‘We have raised this with them as a mat­ter of ur­gency and they have guar­an­teed to empty the bins to­day and weekly from then on.’
