People taking items from recycling bins

Reported in the Damaged, dirty, or missing bin category anonymously at 18:38, Sun 30 August 2020 using FixMyStreet Pro

Not the right category but there wasn’t an alternative. I wanted to report people fishing rubbish out of the recycling bins. I threw away a number of bags containing clothes in the clothes and textiles recycling bin. A couple of hours later I walked past and saw someone holding the ankles of someone else who was in the bin, pulling the bags back out. I recycled my clothes in this bin because it says the material and profits of selling the material go to charity (Scope). This is not the case if the bags are being hooked out by passers by. Also dangerous for the people going inside the bins. Grateful if Council could consider.
