Councillors in Coleford are calling for action over regular late-night bun fights in the Gloucestershire town.
Vandals are raiding bins at the rear of the Co-op store and using the stale bread, cakes and pastry as ammunition.
This leaves a trail of debris across neighbouring Pyart Court which is taking hours to clear.
The town council said it has happened three times in the past month and is calling on Co-op managers to lock their bins at night.
No-one from the Co-op was available for comment.
