Have you ever thought that grass verges look worse after the council has cut them? The reason being that they cut the long grass but leave behind all the litter that is revealed. This is the case throughout Ceredigion.
This month we asked Ceredigion County Council (Department of Highways, Property & Works) why they don't pick up the litter they reveal, even though it is one of their responsibilities. Their answer was that they contract external people to do the cutting, and don't ask them to pick up litter too - it is just ignored. The Council does not go around the next day collecting the litter, it is just left to look a mess and blow around.
