Would you like to live on a street that looks like this?
We wouldn’t. Yet we have teams out every single day clearing up filthy piles of rubbish exactly like this.
In the last year, they cleared 150 tonnes of rubbish dumped by thoughtless people in open spaces that are supposed to be there for us to enjoy.
This pile revealed rotting meat – the smell was sickening.
Enough is enough
There are more opportunities to recycle now than there have ever been.
You can order your bin on the Manchester City Council website. If you need a grey bin, there is a charge of £20. Brown and blue recycling bins are free.
