Keep Wales Tidy commends Conwy
An independent cleansing inspection has reported that Conwy Council is again exceeding the cleanliness standard set out by the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse and the authority should be commended on this increasing improvement.
Back in July 2018, Keep Wales Tidy carried out their inspection of 118 of Conwy’s streets, and Conwy was commended because 97.5% of the inspected streets were graded B and above; streets considered by members of the public to have an acceptable level of cleanliness.
Overall standards of cleanliness in the area continue to be well above the national average recorded in Wales and the Authority is currently exceeding its cleanliness targets against the recording for Conwy in the corresponding survey last year.
Smoking litter, however, continues to be an issue in the county (present on 72% of streets surveyed) making it the biggest litter problem in Conwy.
Keep Wales Tidy has commended the authority for this excellent consistent achievement.
Councillor Don Milne, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Environment said: “We know that the cleanliness of our environment is of great importance to Conwy residents and it’s a priority for the Council.
“We call on the people of Conwy to keep playing their part in keeping the streets of Conwy clean, and urge members of the public to report incidents affecting the cleanliness of the county.
“I’d like to thank the staff for all the effort they put into their work, often in difficult weather conditions. This is the twelfth survey to have taken place and this result shows that Conwy is taking these responsibilities seriously. Well done!”
