I'M writing in response to the letter headlined, "We love our wheelie bins and so will you", in last week's Dagenham Post.

Since I retired six months ago, for exercise I have been going out for walks around local streets.

I've noted that some homes have concrete or some other hard surface, in front of their homes, on which to park their cars, which is quite understandable.

Many homes have a wilderness of weeds, overgrown grass and overgrown hedges that protrude onto the footpath.

Also as mentioned in the letter in the Post, some homes have piles of rubbish in front of them.

Wheelie bins placed in the last two places I've mentioned would probably not be an eyesore, neither would they be an improvement.

Some people, however, have gardens in front of their homes, which I'm sure they tend with pride; they are a pleasure for passers by to look at.

Stick a wheelie bin in and it will be an eyesore. I love looking at these gardens I'll never love wheelie bins.

As for the problem of foxes tearing open rubbish bags. I tip a cupful of strong disinfectant diluted with water into the bag before I tie it up.

After I put out the bags I spray them with disinfectant or fly killer this seems to keep the foxes away.
