Our litter problem is getting no better. On Anti-Litter  Week volunteers of ever creed and colour came out and cleaned up the whole area, now alas our roadsides are worse than ever. On some roads the Co.

Could we once again ask people to please refrain from this dreadful habit.

Please be reminded that our fine recycling centre takes bags of rubbish for landfill now also for a nominal fee.
