One local resident's letter to Fife Council praising the workers was included in a report to the South and West Fife area committee.

Councillors had been discussing the 242 complaints made about council services in the area in 2022-23 but among the brickbats there were some bouquets too.

"My son, spotting the bin lorry passing our house, started to wave and they both very enthusiastically waved back, the driver peeped the horn and his face lit up.

"He raced around to watch them collect our bin and again the guys were great.

"I know they are short staffed, even the driver helped empty the bins. Please pass on my thanks to them."
