LITTER bins in an Orford park have been left overflowing with dog poo.

Residents have reacted with anger after the bins were left piled high with dozens of bags of muck, believing that the council had not completed collections in several weeks.

One resident, who did not wish to be named, said that they felt ‘ashamed’ when the discovered the condition that the park had been left in whilst walking their dog.

The dogwalker said: “Has the council abandoned Peel Hall Park?

“Bins in the park appear to have not been emptied for quite some time, while on the edge of the park the bins have actually been taken care of.

“Or could it be that the council workers are not fulfilling their duties?

“It could also be that the staff reductions have left work undone.

“I felt ashamed of the state of the park.”

Warrington Guardian:

Warrington Borough Council told the Warrington Guardian that it aimed to empty each of its 1,300 litter bins in the town once per week, but admitted that there were occasional ‘short delays’ in carrying out some of its collections.

And all of the litter bins located in Peel Hall Park have now been emptied, the council has been confirmed.

A Warrington Borough Council spokesman said: “All of the litter bins in Peel Hall Park have now been emptied.

“There are 1,300 public litter bins across the borough which means that, although we endeavour to empty them at least once a week, there are occasionally some short delays.”
