A Newarthill resident has hit out at North Lanarkshire Council for leaving recycling bins overflowing.

Annemarie Ward contacted the Times & Speaker after being disgusted by the amount of rubbish left spilling onto the car park next to Newarthill Post Office where the bins are located.

She said: “Is this what we pay our council tax for? Come on North Lanarkshire Council and get your act together!

“Why haven’t these recycling bins been emptied? People are going to the bother of recycling and you leave our village like this.”

A North Lanarkshire Council spokeswoman said: “The bins at Newarthill are due to be emptied tomorrow (Friday).”
