Bags are torn open

REFERENCE letters, August 28, well done to David Drinkwater who highlighted the problems of waste bags and rubbish left outside properties in South Road by residents

REFERENCE letters, August 28, well done to David Drinkwater who highlighted the problems of waste bags and rubbish left outside properties in South Road by residents.Bags appear in increasing numbers almost immediately after Monday's rubbish collection day.Inevitably the bags are torn open by birds, cats and dogs and rubbish left to rot in the street. The debris is not picked up by the refuse team and is left to be distributed by winds along South Road to other properties in the area. On August 28 I saw a huge rat appear from one of the rubbish bags. It ran across the road and over the wall into Rainham Court.Weston hillside has always been recognised as one of the nicest places to live in Weston. However, with the lack of investment for decades in many of the older properties and with landlords only interested in their rental returns, it is up to the council to write to landlords and tenants to ensure hygiene standards are met and adhered to. As council taxpayers we are entitled to a refuse service of a far higher standard.It is not only the rubbish which is a health hazard, but a number of basements which also need cleansing.M S Adams - Trinity Road, Weston
