Residents in the Seabraes Lane area of Dundee are angry that overflowing bins have attracted rats to their neighbourhood. Students living in the area have stated that the problem has been going on for months. Items that are spilling out of the bins and attracting the vermin include rotten food and pizza boxes. Signs have been put up by residents urging people to contact Dundee City Council about the waste. One student said that the bins hadn’t been emptied for 4 weeks and that she has put signs up asking residents to recycle as much as possible to avoid adding to the problem.
