HAVING been a business owner on Bolton Street, Bury, for the best part of 40 years, I am dismayed most Saturday and Sunday mornings by the amount of litter discarded on the pavement outside the fast food establishments from the nights before.

It is a total disgrace, what must early morning visitors to the East Lancashire Railway think when they visit our town?

Now, I’m not blaming the food shops, not even the people who discard the disused food trays etc, Surely the answer has to be for the council to install at least another couple of waste bins, as the only one there is always full to the brim by early evening, and there is nowhere else to discard this waste.

No wonder rats are often seen in the vicinity.

So please Bury Council, will you kindly look into this as a matter of urgency.
