I HAVE been a resident in the Whitecross area for more than 40 years and been proud of this area until recently, when the bin collections have taken place.

Rubbish is left strewn over roads and footpaths and within hours fly tippers have made their return to leave the streets with beds, mattresses and other rubbish.

This area is now, I am ashamed to say, a disgrace to Warrington Borough Council.

We as residents have had tidy days to remove the rubbish and also a skip for two hours but within hours of finishing it’s back to looking a mess again.
