Is a bin thief on the loose?

The council has clearly changed its mind about litter and dog fouling!

After an extensive and apparently effective campaign to encourage people to pick up after their dogs, it has removed a great number of bins from the areas where people walk their dogs!

As a result, people are hanging bags of dog waste on railings where bins used to be or are deciding not to bother to clean up after all.

There’s either a serial bin-napper around or the council is, yet again, proving its inability to employ joined-up thinking!
