Keep Wales Tidy Find Our Streets Litter Free

Our streets are mostly litter-free, a latest inspection survey has revealed.

Keep Wales Tidy released the results of their latest inspection of the standards of cleanliness of Powys streets.  They carry out the inspections twice a year on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government when a randomly selected four per cent of streets across the county are checked for litter.

The latest inspection examined a selection of streets in 17 towns across Powys, which revealed that 100 per cent of the streets inspected contained no litter or were predominantly free of litter.  Keep Wales Tidy rated Powys streets of a high or acceptable standard of cleanliness with none of the litter bins encountered found to be overflowing.

Analysis of the minimum amounts of litter encountered during the inspection revealed that smoking-related waste, plastic drinks bottles and dog fouling remain an issue in some areas.

Cllr Gary Price, Board Member responsible for Street Cleansing, said: "I am delighted with the excellent inspection results and I wish to congratulate those involved in the cleansing and our residents in helping to keep our streets litter-free.

"However, we must remain vigilant and continue to work with colleagues from Keep Wales Tidy to encourage further Tidy Towns activities within our communities, both urban and rural."- All new bins will also have provision for smoking waste.

Tidy Towns funding is also used to assist the activities of local Keep Wales Tidy staff in their work of supporting local community groups with activities such as litter picking days, area clean ups, clearing of overgrown areas etc.

Any community groups interested in carrying out such Tidy Towns schemes should contact Powys County Council on 0845 602 7035 or email highways.and.waste@powys.gov.uk

Alternatively contact your local Keep Wales Tidy officers to discuss project options for their particular area on 029 2072 6991 (North Powys) or 029 2072 6990 (South Powys)
