UNCOLLECTED rubbish will soon be a thing of the past – thanks to the Chester Bin Fairy.
The magical character is the brainchild of an anonymous Hoole resident who is fed up of refuse collectors not taking his bins away.
He decided to do something about it and help others in the same position.
“A friend of mine runs a blog in Birmingham which has been very successful and is now monitored by their City Council,” he said.
“So I set up an email account, Twitter page and website to try and get the message out.
“I had three enquiries in as many days – the same day I set it up I got a message saying, ‘Thank God someone is doing this!’.
“If people see rubbish or litter on the streets, or see rubbish that hasn't been taken away, they often don't go to the council because they assume someone has already reported it.
“The whole point of the bin fairy is that it’s fun and can do some community good.”
