The council is encouraging people to recycle by emptying bins every other week and collecting recyclable rubbish on alternate weeks.
She said: 'Nobody wants to sit with piles of rubbish in the kitchen for a fortnight. There is no way that, even with recycling, anyone can manage with just one bin, so you've black bags in every yard in the street.'
She said black bags are being dumped in the gardens of empty properties and attracting rats.
But Neil Ferris, principal waste management officer at North Lincolnshire, said the strategy was the best way to reduce councils' reliance on landfill. He said the majority of the 70,000 households are complying. For residents like Ms Pollock, he said, 'we want her to deal with her rubbish and we're providing her with the facilities to do that'.
