Troedyrhiw residents deserve better

Fly tipping is ‘the illegal dumping of waste’. We are very sorry to say that this is a huge problem across Troedyrhiw with there being quite a few ‘hot spots’ that are all too obvious to residents and visitors alike. We are not referring here to the odd dropped sweet wrapper or discarded cigarette end but the deliberate disposal in public places of a variety of large and small items including rubbish that has been neatly bagged.


As regular visitors to this blog will know Friends of Saron have taken a particular interest in keeping the graveyard and footpath tidy but this is becoming, like painting the Forth Bridge, a never ending task. The photographs show some waste that has recently been dumped by the side of the Cardiff Road to Chapel Street footpath and also some deliberate vandalism to garden fencing.

All of this is extremely frustrating for residents of Troedyrhiw  and for all the village groups that are working to make the village environment something to be proud of rather than ashamed of.

Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. 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
