Lit­ter­bugs solely to blame for rub­bish

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

THE lo­cal MP for Hayes blames the coun­cil for the amount of lit­ter on the streets of Hayes, [but] the lit­ter is caused by dirty peo­ple who can’t be both­ered to use a bin.

Ev­ery­where I travel in this bor­ough the paths and roads are strewn with rub­bish – peo­ple will not even pick up when our bin and re­cy­cle men have col­lected, even when it is out­side their house.

Since the Rigby Road Re­cy­cling Cen­tre was closed there has been a big in­crease in the amount of fly tip­ping along Goulds Green Lane, but I do not blame any­one but the dirty peo­ple who do it.

Our road clean­ers, both on foot and in sweep­ers, do a very good job against an ever in­creas­ing amount of lit­ter and rub­bish.

Chang­ing tack slightly, I was in Hol­land dur­ing De­cem­ber for a week and was amazed at the lack of lit­ter and rub­bish.

Wher­ever I went it was free of any lit­ter and rub­bish and peo­ple took pride in how clean they kept their coun­try. The fines for lit­ter are heavy so they don’t do it!

There was a food van in the vil­lage I was stay­ing in and if there was any lit­ter left they could lose their li­cence, so please Mr MP don’t blame any­one but the peo­ple who cause the prob­lem and hit them with a big fine! CHARLES YOUELL 74 Dick­ens Av­enue
