SIR, - With reference to Mrs S. Bridgman's letter (Herts Advertiser, March 26), I am in total agreement with her. If we have any litter, for example from a picnic, we take it home rather than contributing to possible overfill in a litter bin.

During the recent spell of snow when our non-recyclable rubbish was only collected after a month - and for two people, I only had two carrier bags full - I saw a full black wheelie bin accompanied by 11 full plastic bags of varying sizes waiting to be collected outside one house and a cardboard toilet-roll centre peeking out of another black bin. Surely so much rubbish is totally unnecessary.

While I am on my hobby horse, I find it very sad to see all the litter under the railway footbridge leading from Carlton Road to Bowers Way, Harpenden, partly due to the bad design of the steps built with no risers - through which the litter is deposited - only treads and impossible to retrieve except by access from the railway line.

WENDY SHARP,
