Everyone 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.
