Southwood Road Park- Litter bin by outdoor fitness centre is overflowing in park

I pick up litter each day in this park and place it in this and the bin close to the former football clubhouse. Plastic and glass bottles, food packaging are all bulky and the bins need to be emptied regularly. This bin has been overflowing for more than three days and park users are just leaving more litter on the path and surrounding grass areas. (NB: The site says Flytipping & litter but options only relate to flytipping.)
