Cllr Elizbeth Nash said:

“We know litter really gets residents angry – it is also bad for wildlife. Cllr Mohammed Iqbal, Cllr Paul Wray and I have now increased the litter bin capacity of the ward year on year for the last four years – helping residents to do the right thing by making sure more areas have a nearby litter bin. The extra time this also saves council staff from litter picking means they can do other tasks which help to keep our community clean and tidy.”

These litter bins have been ordered and should be delivered and installed by Easter.
