SIR — Thank God, someone else also has a colony of wriggling beasts outside their window. Is this a health hazard? I have heard that there is a new career called bin cleaner , about £3.50 per bin. If so, can he please call in the Chiswell Green area. MOI

SIR - Thank God, someone else also has a colony of wriggling beasts outside their window. Is this a health hazard?

I have heard that there is a new career called 'bin cleaner', about £3.50 per bin. If so, can he please call in the Chiswell Green area.

SIR - Mr David Gould asks (Herts Advertiser, September 24) how to rid his green recycling bins of maggots.

If he phones Client Services on 01727 819285 they can give him the name and telephone number of a wheelie bin cleaning service who, I'm sure, will be glad to clean and disinfectant his green recycling and his black bin as well.

I'm surprised he has maggots in his green bin; many people get them in the black bin.

I still use dustbin liners for my household rubbish and put all my pedal bin bags into there and when full sellotape the top securely before putting it into the bin.

So far I've not been troubled with maggots.

I've also kept my dustbins and only use the wheelie bin on the day when they are to be collected.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
