She said: “We at the town council have been really concerned by the huge amounts of litter being left in and around the town during lockdown.

“It seems that people enjoying takeaway food and drink or going out for picnics are not taking responsibility for their litter.

“We urge everyone to take their litter home with them and dispose of it there.

“Bins around town are filling up really quickly and some people are dumping household waste, which has exacerbated the situation.

“Our waste providers are out regularly trying to keep up, but the street bins are not for household waste.

“If you are generating more household waste than you can store safely please take it to your local recycling centres.”

If you see large quantities of rubbish in Marlow, you can report it to Buckinghamshire Council.
