Overflowing dog poo bins in Hutton have been filled with cat litter and dirty nappies, causing complaints from villagers.
Bins in Hutton are being used to dispose of inappropriate animal waste, such as rabbit pellets and cat litter.
On one occasion, dirty nappies were reportedly shoved into a bin.
Hutton Parish Council has agreed to install ‘dog waste only’ signs at each of the 17 bins across the village.
Of these, bins in Moor Lane, Church Lane and adjacent to Elmhurst play area are said to be the worst affected.
