Cornwall Council has recently trialled seagull proof sacks in a number of areas. These sacks are for the containment of domestic household refuse which is not put out in bins. Household refuse should be bagged as usual and the seagull proof sack can hold up to the equivalent of 3 black bags of rubbish. Loose rubbish will not be collected. The sacks can help you protect your rubbish from seagulls and other vermin and will help reduce the amount of litter on your street. It is easy to store between collections and has proved to be very effective in seaside areas. Further information can be found at the Cornwall Council website.
The sacks are now available to purchase from Tintagel Parish Council at a cost of £3.50 each.
If you are interested in purchasing a sack, or know a neighbour who has a problem with storage of refuse, please contact the Parish Clerk.
