COUNCIL workers will be out to clear a backlog of work that has left some bins in the town overflowing with dog poo.

This bin in Grappenhall Heys, pictured, was especially overflowing on Monday.

A council spokesman said: “Due to increased activity in some of our parks over the bank holiday and due to a recent staff illness some bins in parks and open spaces across the borough have unfortunately not been emptied at their normal frequencies.

“We will be looking to clear the backlog as soon as practicable in those areas during this coming week.”
