Aldeburgh is to get recycling bins as part of a pilot to curb littering, with a series set to lined up along the seafront.
Aldeburgh Town Council and East Suffolk Council are replacing the open-top and flip-top bins where rubbish blows out and attracts pests with more secure, larger bins, to be dotted along the seafront.
New bins with recycling compartments are also being piloted, following public feedback.
According to the council, fast food and takeaway rubbish is a particular problem.
Councillor James Mallinder, cabinet member for the environment, said: “Working with the local community and town council, we have been able to make some small changes to try to help reduce littering.

“We are working hard to ensure there are plenty of bins available and it is hoped these new style bins will make it even easier for visitors to Aldeburgh to keep the town tidy.”
