Together We Can Beat Litter Louts


CARDIFF council's environmental scrutiny committee has launched its own inquiry into litter within the city.

The inquiry will focus on key aspects of nuisance litter including fast food litter, chewing gum, smoking-related litter and dog-fouling.

It will also consider elements of best practice from other areas and investigate how the council can work with the community and other partners to reduce levels of litter in Cardiff.

The inquiry was launched yesterday to coincide with Tidy Wales Week, which runs from September 17 to September 23.

During the exercise, staff from Keep Wales Tidy will work closely with the environmental scrutiny committee to provide support and independent opinion.

Since the local elections in May the council has set reducing litter within the city as one of its priorities.

It aims to develop a clear policy for litter bins and create a zero tolerance approach for enforcement of littering, dog-fouling, fly-tipping and graffiti.

The new approach to reducing litter levels will include the delivery of tailored education to the public and its partners, raising awareness of litter offences and focusing on the enforcement of litter offences.

The committee will focus efforts on finding ways to reduce litter levels in Cardiff, and will publish the findings of the report in January 2013.

To help support this exercise the committee has devised a short survey to find out what the public feel about nuisance litter in the city.
