Karen I wrote:The bins are put there by the council for use by the businesses. The businesses pay for the bins. If the bin is not big enough for their use, they need to pay for another one. Therefore bags of commercial waste on the floor by bins is the fault of the vendor. Personally I think we should do all we can to stop people eating on the street, food gets dropped or thrown and generally the smell from all the different types of food is revolting. If we must have pop up stalls they should be in areas where people can sit and eat and dispose of their rubbish properly. I'm sick and tired of removing food and drinks wrappings off our garden wall because people are too lazy to hang on to the litter until they find a bin. In this respect it is not the vendor's fault, but they could help by displaying signs.
