Rubbish bins have been the target of some unsavoury behaviour by vandals as Bunbury residents were left to pick up trash strewn throughout the streets after their bins were smashed.

Police are calling for CCTV footage of several East Bunbury streets after a driver “who has a dislike for rubbish bins” went around the neighbourhood smashing bins into broken chunks of plastic and leaving the litter scattered across the streets.

Bunbury resident Joel Bebbington had a rude awakening in the early hours on Thursday when he faced this chaos, pictured, after he was woken up by people smashing bins in his street.

Mr Bebbington found himself cleaning up the carnage of the vandalism, along with that of his neighbours whose bins also fell victim to the crime.

Community members in South Bunbury also reported similar experiences last week.
