Bin services need to be more accommodating

THIS picture was taken at noon on January 9 in Dacre Street, Chichester.

It was a very windy day, with gusts of 60mph.  

It looks like the aftermath of a riot.

It’s not, it’s just the rubbish broken out of black bags after the binmen exercised their preogative not to take black bags that weren’t in a wheelie bin.

I’ve reported it and it’s another department’s headache now - and an eyesore and health hazard for the residents of Dacre Street.

Surely common sense can dictate after a long holiday period and fortnightly collections. Just throw the bags in too?
