Dog bin causes another stink
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.’
