Canonmills and neighbouring streets are an unsightly and trip-hazardous jummle.

So says Napier Bathrooms’ Johnny Bacigalupo.

This morning, he contacted the Spurtle with a photo catalogue of shortcomings, many of which he blames on Council neglect.

Canon Street

No excuses for bad bin behaviour

Dear Spurtle,

This is a bin in Scotland Street.

During the storm on Friday 26 November, it was empty and blown into the kerb. It is proving difficult to deal with. The normal vehicle cannot lift it and, as it is full it requires more than two men to push into position. The Council is dealing with the results of the storm across the city and problems in streets with far higher density and footfall than Scotland Street.
