Brigg Blog makes no apology for endeavouring to put a positive slant on life in the town whenever possible.
So, with this in mind, were are pleased to report that an issue has been resolved - bins with lids being installed at the cemetery in which old flowers, litter and 'dog poo' bags can be deposited.
They have replaced smaller wire mesh versions considered unsuitable for the task.
Coun Penny Smith called for bigger and better bins last autumn, telling a Town Council meeting: "My concern is for the men who have to come along and empty these baskets."
That was a reference to deposited 'poo bags' being mixed up with old flowers and general litter inside the mesh baskets and having to be removed by hand.
A reply given at the same time suggested a fairly quick solution might be found.
This has taken some time to achieve, but bigger and more suitable bins are now in place.
However, when we visited the cemetery over the weekend and took the picture seen top left, the wheelie-bin near the side entrance/exit off Eastfield Road was full to overflowing and some dog-walkers had left full bags on the grass beneath as side waste rather than taking the contents home with them or finding another bin en route.
This will have been a temporary blip in collection, but we'll endeavour to find out the current emptying arrangements for the cemetery wheelie bins now provided for litter.
PICTURED: One of the new wheelie bins next to the previous wire mesh version, and the contents of one of the old bins (since removed).
