Litter in Ceredigion - 1

There has been lots of talk about the increase in litter in Ceredigion recently, presumably due to the Council cutting back on litter-collecting services (and in some cases contracting workers who add to the litter problem). Even when you do report problems the Council generally does nothing if it can get away with it (e.g. here and here). So we are going to do a few posts about this topic in the next month. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, here's a reminder of how Council decisions make the litter problem worse.

I've noticed an increase in litter along the cycle paths around Aber. It's such a mess. Also, along the path from Morrisons to the police station teh other week there were workers mowing the verge, and vast amounts of plastic were blowing everywhere as it was a very windy day. No attempt was made to clear it up. I haven't been back since to see if they were going to pick it up later but it was distributed for 100s and 100s of yards.

no doubt the council will be cutting litter collection further as they try to save money.
