Be Careful the Environment You Choose For It Will Shape You.
Does it matter where waste/refuse is dumped? That’s a rhetorical question we are asking ourselves. Of course it does. It matters if it is in Lydd, New Romney, St Marys Bay, Dymchurch, Hythe or Folkestone. Waste/Refuse has its rightfully place, that being in a wheelie bin or other receptacle.
Of late there has been a lot of whoha about waste on the streets of Shepway. A Cllr has denigrated the Town Sprucer for his fine efforts and Veolia and their £3.2 million pound contract appears not to be working properly across the District.
In Sept 2015 Dover Road hit the local headlines for all the wrong reasons
not a pleasant site to behold, no matter where it is. Recently a member of public walking their dog, took the photo below – very close to The Grand in the West End of Folkestone. Regardless of where one lives, it appears as though some people have no regard for their, or other residents of the district’s environment when they leave refuse on our streets.
So What do SDC say about about Street Cleaning and Litter. Well they say the following:
sweep town centres and main shopping areas every day
empty litter bins as necessary
sweep residential areas according to how busy they are, on a scale from once a fortnight to three times a week.
