A local manufacturer is offering a secure bin to store garbage safely away while keeping out animals and rodents.

Managing director of L&N Workshop, Norma Edwards, said that while it was okay to talk about collecting garbage and purchasing more trucks, there was a simpler solution.

“If you have an area where people will bring their garbage to one collection point, and there is something to store that garbage in for any length of time whether it is one or two hours you would have the problem where dogs, cats and rodents will pull it away. That is a problem and an eyesore for everyone."  (Green Bananas Media.)
