THE letter (HAS, Apr 4) regarding overflowing bins hit the nail on the head.

These bins are for litter and not dog mess. I agree, some must be completely thick. To see a bin full of dog mess bags and then go and add to it beggars belief.

I went on my social distancing walk and passed three and they stunk to high heaven.

That must be a health hazard, and that’s just what we don’t need right now. Some poor soul will have to empty them. The present situation is bringing out the best in people, but it’s also bringing out the worst.

Use some common sense, take it home and burn it if needed. Stay safe everyone.
