The Streets of Scarborough are set to look tidier this Summer thanks to an innovative plan by the Council to use more rigid bin bags that seagulls wont be able to bite through to get to any unwanted rubbish AKA dinner.
Cllr Andrew Jenkinson said: “This the start of a long campaign to basically win the streets back. There is so much damaged caused by them.
“I am delighted that these sacks will soon be in use in our borough.
“While for some people no visit to the seaside would be complete without seeing and hearing seagulls, for others they are a genuine nuisance and I think anything we can legally do to reduce the problems they cause can only be a good thing for all concerned.”
The seaside council have invested around £10,000 in the new bin bags which are abot to be delivered to local residents and so far they have been met with approval from people who are dog sick of having their rubbish spilled across the streets by overzealous seagulls trying to find a snack.
Good luck to all involved in this great scheme!
