Westhoughton needs more litter bins to help tackle the scourge of litter on our town’s streets, town councillor Neil Maher has said.
Councillor Maher, who is the Westhoughton South candidate in the upcoming May 6 local elections, has urged Bolton Council to rethink its refusal to provide any new litter bins.
Liberal Democrat town councillors have even offered to pay for new bins from Westhoughton Town Council’s budget, but the proposal has been rejected by town hall chiefs.
Neil said: “We have a big problem with litter in Westhoughton. It’s thanks to dedicated residents that we’ve been able to keep the problem at bay with regular litter picks being carried out over the past few months.
“But we really need to see more bins installed in Westhoughton.”
