Outrage as people dump household waste in dog mess bin in Welwyn Garden City

RESIDENTS unable to cope with the new bin system have started dumping household rubbish into dog mess bins.

A pile of bags was left near one such bin at the junction of Springfield and Stacklands, Welwyn Garden City, and more rubbish was stuffed into the bin.

A Handside Lane resident who saw the mess said: “People are stuffing household waste in the waste bins.

“It’s an absolute disgrace.

“If it’s going to be reproduced around the town it has to be knocked on the head pretty quickly.”
