Residents were surprised to discover a heap of domestic rubbish dumped on the main A158 in the middle of Wragby on Sunday morning - only yards from the village church.
People living nearby heard some commotion around 11.45pm on Saturday but thought it was youngsters after a night out.
This scene was photographed at 8.15am on Sunday.
A green wheelie bin, with North East Lincolnshire Council’s logo, was dumped in an a adjacent gateway and was empty of its contents.
Some people believe local youths were responsible.
