A council has issued a reminder to householders about the appropriate use of their bins – after a 'forest in a bin' was discovered during collection.
It comes after one resident left their bin open and overflowing with garden waste.
In a post to Facebook, East Suffolk Council said: "You've got to be kidding us, right?
"You know that thing about ensuring you can close the lid…
"Please make sure the lid on your bin closes - otherwise we won't be able to collect it #gardenwaste #forestinabin #goodluckwiththat."
