Carlisle council to spend £310,000 on two-year city clean-up

Politicians who pledged to “clean up Carlisle” have set out how they will do it.
Have your say
We do not have green recycling tubs nor fancy bags, nor anything else where I live in rural Cumbria.
If we choose to recycle we have to put all our rubbish in the boot of our car and travel miles to the nearest recycling spot.
When will recycling be rolled out to villages on the outskirts of Carlisle?
Dear sir/madam I emailed three weeks ago regarding litter strewn all over Aglionby Street via seagulls, last night when I left work I put out our purple bags but this time I did so by piling them on top of each other in an unused green box we have, this has successfully prevented seagulls from ripping the bags up and leaving litter everywhere however your operatives seem to have left one bag in the bottom of the green box, this was clearly visible at 20 yards so i dont know how they missed it! Furthermore when my collegue came to work this morning she witnessed the dental assistant across the road having to sweep up the litter from damaged bags from the front of the dentists herself. In a slightly unrelated matter there is also a black wheelie bin (which now contains the aforementioned uncollected purple bag) that has been left unmoved on the corner of aglionby street for over 2 months now with apparently no one laying claim to it.
I know there are some things out of the councils control however the seagul problem seems now to be an epidemic, perhaps a cull or some type of recepticle (like my green box idea!) to place bags in is now inorder before we start attracting the plague rat or urban fox.
In a bid to stop the seagulls ripping up my purple bags i have this week placed them one on top of the other in my spare green box, will this idea pass muster with the council or will it infringe on some bizare bin man health and safety code?
