A bin set on a busy thoroughfare for pedestrians beside a stream was left overflowing with rubbish for more than a week during the holiday season.
The bin, which is situated in the Aberdeen City suburb of Cults, was left overflowing from at least the 31st of December through to the afternoon of the 6th of January when it was finally emptied.
Local resident Hazel Carnegie , 73, who splits her time between Cults and Bridge of Don, thought it was rubbish the mess that was left.
Hazel said: “I think it’s disgusting. People should be encouraged to deposit their rubbish in containers but it doesn’t help when those containers are not being emptied.”

Six absolutely rubbish days
The bin, which is clearly inadequate for the amount of litter being dumped there, is situated metres away from a stream that runs through Kirk Brae, Cults.
The paths around it are regular thoroughfares for dog walkers and families going in and about the village.
Local authority Aberdeen City Council have been contacted about the mess.
