Lockdown Litter Update

During the last quarter we've collected, with the assistance of our fantastic volunteer team, over 1500 bags of waste and a mass of fly tip. Some of these figures have included the support we have given to Neighbourhood Services over the last quarter whilst they try to deal with staffing issues related to Covid 19. A never ending picture of the mess people leave behind . . . . .

Enforcement teams are really cracking down on those who are being irresponsible with their waste. If you're paying please make sure you follow the advice given at:
