Ellon and District councillor, Gillian Owen, has appealed for members of the public to keep rubbish out of grit bins.

She said: “Having just had the first cold blast of the winter I checked my local grit bin in the Library car park.

“The first thing that struck me was the rubbish, that is not the purpose of a grit bin - take rubbish home or find a bin.

“I was pleased to see that the bin was three quarters full however, having checked another in McDonald Drive I noticed it was only half full.

Cllr Owen added: “If you want a grit bin get in contact and we shall see what can be done.”
