Less litter on Conwy's streets
Conwy’s streets continue to improve in cleanliness with a reduction in litter, according to the All Wales Annual LEAMS Report 2018/19 published by Keep Wales Tidy.
At 72.3 Conwy’s ‘Cleanliness Indicator’ is higher than the Wales average and is the highest figure recorded for Conwy since 2008/2009.
97.5% of streets were graded B or above, an improvement on last year’s figure and better than the current all Wales figure.
Cllr Greg Robbins, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Roads & Facilities said: "I’m pleased that Conwy has performed well in this survey again – clean streets are important to us and to our residents.
“I’d like to thank the Open Spaces team for all their hard work, and also residents and visitors for disposing of their litter responsibly. It’s working together that has achieved these results.
While the results show that general litter is down, smoking related litter and dog fouling have increased slightly since last year and that’s disappointing. To the people who are not being respectful of where we live – put your litter in a bin or take it home with you, like everyone else.”
Smoking related litter continues to be the most common type of litter found on the streets in Wales. This is the case in Conwy with smoking related litter found on 72% of streets surveyed.
