THIS is an open letter to the person responsible for fly-tipping their household waste every fortnight at the same spot next to the red dog waste bin where the pathway splits off to Ramsey Road, in St Ives (next to the playing field) then to the Rainbow supermarket.Thank you for leaving up to three bags of rubbish during the night which contain cooked kitchen waste among other things, which cats/foxes rip apart and leave strewn about.Then, early in the morning, I come walking round the corner with my dog who is particularly interested in the bones left behind. Do you not have any idea how dangerous cooked bones are to dogs and that it also attracts vermin?I'm sorry that Huntingdonshire District Council now collects your waste every fortnight, and it obviously will not fit inside your wheelie bin, but why should we be the ones to stare at the mess you leave behind?You recently left several cardboard boxes for electric heaters with your usual rubbish bags. These could have been recycled if you had walked a little further to the recycling centre in the supermarket car park.You leave it here because you know the council will pick it up when they empty the rubbish bins. But why should they - it's your waste.STEVEN PARKERVictor CloseSt Ives
