Get larger businesses to take responsibility. Add recycling bins for public
I live next to Tesco, just over the footbridge. There is always a pile of rubbish just behind the wall where the kids sit, and the rubbish also trails up the footbridge and beyond. While Tesco’s keep their car park relatively litter free, why can’t they entend a little beyond? The rubbish is all from Tesco’s so I think they should take a bit more responsiblilty rather than what’s their official bounderies but the walk way that is only really used to get to Tesco. Tesco is large enough to sort their surrounding area, when I often see small businesses sweeping the outside areas of their shop. If smaller businesses can do it then there is no excuse for the big corporations.
I would also love to see recycling bins for the public. Cardiff have them and it just makes people a bit more aware of what they are throwing away. People would be more inclined to recycle items rather than putting all their rubbish in one public bin.
I also think an occasional road sweeper doing local roads once in a while would help.
Why the contribution is important
I feel like making these two changes would reduce the amount of litter in the streets. I have noticed how bad it has become recently. Its no good for wildlife and it’s no good for community spirit. I think once people start being ok with litter the problem escalates.
