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.
