Club boss Tony Carpenter said his staff had been puzzled why their bins kept filling up, labelled the incident ‘shocking’ and now wants their waste bill to be subsidised.
He said: ‘Our cleaner mentioned it about three or four weeks ago and I said I would take a look, but we have been quite busy and I never got round to it.

‘Then on Sunday morning my wife went to empty the bottle bank and saw the recycling bin filled up with bin bags. It was empty the night before.

‘I had a look at the CCTV and there he was, so I went back and checked a few other Sundays. I couldn’t believe it. It is shocking and a bit despicable really.
This company is paid by council taxpayers to take the rubbish away to the proper tip not bloody dump it in our bins. I think they should contribute towards our waste bill.
‘I haven’t had time to check the CCTV on other days of the week, so who knows how long this has been going on? I can’t find out as our CCTV only goes back a month.’
Stuart Best, Bournemouth council’s street service manager, said: ‘We have been made aware of the CCTV footage and are fully investigating this serious matter.’
Watson Contract Cleaning Services similarly said it was carrying out an investigation having received a complaint, but could not provide any further comment.
Mr Carpenter said he had received an email from the council saying it was taking the matter ‘very seriously’, and an email from Watson apologising for any issues caused.
