One of our regular readers sends us the quote in the title of this post and reports bins overflowing in the harbour area with seagulls foraging and rubbish blowing onto the beach, he also included the picture above.
Vix too was complaining in his column about the gulls getting into poo bags etc from the bins along the seafront areas. There is a school of thought that the Council do not empty bins enough on warm sunny days. Most visitors try their best and try and dispose of their rubbish in a bin but what can they do if the bins are full? Does the Highland Council have a contingency for warm sunny days when more rubbish is generated?
