Later col­lec­tions to tackle fox prob­lem

WITH ref­er­ence to the let­ter re­gard­ing bin col­lec­tions ‘Thank you to our bin hero in dayglo’ (Gazette, May 27), we also are hav­ing prob­lems with lo­cal foxes rip­ping our bin bags apart be­fore they are col­lected, and leav­ing a mess on our drive and in the road on a regular, weekly ba­sis.

I have of­ten won­dered why the refuse col­lec­tors start so early in the morn­ing – ours are usu­ally here by about 6am, which means we have to put our rub­bish bags out the night be­fore.

If the col­lec­tions didn’t start un­til, say, 8am, we could all put our bags out be­fore go­ing to work, school, etc, and they would only be out on the street for a much shorter time, and with more peo­ple around at this time it would prob­a­bly de­ter the foxes and other an­i­mals from get­ting to the bags and cre­at­ing the mess.

some­one at the ex­pense of the civil­ians living in the sur­round­ing ar­eas.
