Residents deserve a nice environment


DSC00356Everyone deserves their natural and built environment to be respected by all. Did you know that last year it cost the Welsh tax payer (that’s us) £1.9 million to clean up the mess left by illegal fly tipping?

At the September ‘Be Tidy’ day organised by Friends of Saron over 30 large bags of dumped rubbish were collected from a small area of Troedyrhiw. Other waste collected included paint tins, a vacuum cleaner, a large holdall, various items of clothing, a car radio, asbestos sheeting, a steam generator, a council road sign, a pile of clothing, a front door, a box of cigarette butts and a variety of unidentifiable metal items.

Troedyrhiw is a nice village set in a lovely valley. Let’s all do our bit to make it the best it can be.

For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
