Residents’ chairman complains about waste
Scattered food marring town’s wholesome appearance, says Ken Sherman.
Honiton’s ‘wholesome appearance’ is being marred by inconsiderate businesses and residents who put food waste out for collection too early.
That’s the view of a residents’ association, whose chairman has written to Honiton Town Council calling for action.
Ken Sherman, of the Northcote Lane Area Residents’ Association, hopes local councillors will lobby East Devon District Council over the issue.
He wants to see reminders issued about people’s responsibilities to the environment.
Mr Sherman told the town council in a letter that the problem is particularly noticeable in High Street and New Street, where, he claims, food waste is being put out a day before collections.
“The problem arises when wildlife, scavenging for food, break open the bags and scatter the food waste around the area,” he wrote.
