SIX new waste bins have been installed in an attempt to combat litter in Westhoughton.

The bins along Great Bank Road and Long Lane have been funded by company Stateside Foods following complaints of bottles, crisp packets and sandwich wrappers on the grass verges and footpaths at the nearby industrial estate.

Stateside worked with Bolton Council to install them and they will be emptied by the company’s site service team at no extra cost to Bolton Council.
