Bins left in a very bad way

First published in Salisbury Letters

BIG, fat, wriggling, white maggots. Lots of them. And the smell. Excuse me while I try to keep my stomach contents in place… Our bin men should not have to work in these conditions. It is an absolute disgrace. How can anyone think that only collecting household waste once every two weeks is acceptable, especially in the hot summer months?

I commend our bin men for their strong stomachs and their dedication. Thank you for the work that you do for us. Perhaps the councillors who think fortnightly bin collections are acceptable could swap with you on a hot day in August? Maybe common sense might then prevail.
