Litter frequently overflowing from bins.

The litter bins situated in Hawes Lane outside The Glebe school are frequently overflowing and the litter is often spread around the surrounding area. The bins need to be emptied more frequently or perhaps be larger. Often when the bins are full rubbish is blown out all over the surrounding area. This has become more of an issue in recent weeks and bearing in mind the school has been closed during the summer the amount of rubbish placed in these bins will likely increase as the area will be busier as the schools return. It's such a shame that people clearly use the bins in an attempt to keep the area tidy for the rubbish to then end up on the street and often left in the gutter for weeks.
