A LITTER-FREE WALES?

Litter-fly-tipping-consult-2

The Welsh Government is seeking views on proposals to help Wales become free of both litter and fly-tipping.

In the words of the consulation:

‘Litter and fly-tipping are a blight on our communities. They pose a threat to humans and wildlife, can damage our environment and spoil our enjoyment of our towns and countryside. Poor local environmental quality can also have a negative impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing, with such anti-social behaviour often resulting in an area appearing run-down and neglected. This can result in further anti-social behaviour or crimes that are even more serious.’

To tackle these problems, the Welsh Government intends to implement a plan aimed at:

  • reducing environmental impact;
  • easing financial pressure on taxpayers;
  • encouraging pride of place amongst communities; and
  • helping establish a circular economy in Wales.

The consultation is available here; the deadline for responses is 25 March.
