THIS was the shocking scene at Tesco's Duloch store at around 8pm on Boxing Day.

The recycling point was inaccessible due to mountains of boxes and other rubbish dumped in the hours following Christmas Day.

One nearby resident, who sent in the photo but did not wish to be named, said: "This has been a continuous problem and it's not getting any better.

"It is being used to fly-tip, not recycle. 

"It's at people's back doors and is used all through the night with people dumping all sorts.

"It's particularly bad because it's Christmas but it's always packed full with people dumping anything."
