Maghull & Lydiate Labour Action Team's June Burns has praised Sefton Council for "prompt action" in dealing with a grot spot near to a busy roadside in Maghull.
June spotted rubbish overflowing from two industrial wheelie bins to the side of the recently closed Tile Warehouse just off Northway.
The bins were so full that rubbish bags had fallen out of the bins and onto the car park.
June said as the site is alongside the busy dual carriageway, she was concerned that the bins weren't creating the best image for people travelling through Maghull.
June said: "Northway is a main arterial road through the town. Thousands of people use that road every day. The overflowing bins were not creating the best impression of Maghull for the people travelling through.
"The site has been vacant for a number of weeks and I'm not sure if the bins had been filled by other people, or by the previous tenants.
"Either way, it didn't look good and it needed attention. If left, it would attract rats and other vermin."
June contacted Sefton Council cleansing department who immediately dispatched a team. They began the process of a clear-up and are investigating who is responsible.
June said: "Maghull & Lydiate Labour Action Team contacted Sefton Council and they came along to deal with the issue.
"They took a look at the problem and began the clean up process. This entails ascertaining who is responsible and ensuring that action is taken.
"My Labour Action Team colleagues and I will continue to monitor the site to ensure the problem doesn't arise again."
