There’s been a massive increase in the amount of rubbish being scattered amongst the trees at this section of the canal.

Can it please be cleaned? It’s getting worse and worse.

  • There is 1 bin along that stretch which is rarely emptied and is not large enough to cope with all the rubbish from people walking along there, so they flytip. That section needs more bins emptied more regularly.

  • I don’t think it’s just a lack of bins, there’s someone purposely placing large items in the trees. It’s much more than discarded rubbish from the passers by.
