Residents tweet Council about rubbish
A resident of Roath in Cardiff has started tweeting pictures of rubbish left lying around in the streets to voice his concerns over the rubbish problems in the area. Roath is a popular area for students and often faces refuse problems particularly at peak times such as when students vacate the area for summer holidays etc.
The problem which Simon Jones highlights through the twitter feed “rubbishinroath” of overturned bins and bags ripped open by seagulls has been acknowledged by the Council who have said that they do note the tweets but require all issues with litter to be logged via their official channels.
The council have said: “We would encourage any residents who spot particular problems to contact C2C on 029 2087 2087 and this will be referred to waste supervisors or enforcement teams as appropriate.”
They have also said that in the Roath, Plasnewydd and Cathays areas, extra cleansing duties have begun for the next three weeks as part of “Get it out for Cardiff” which coincides with the Cardiff student accommodation leaving dates.
