Why cut the grass before picking up all the litter?
CAN you please explain the logic in cutting the grass verges prior to collecting litter, the consequences are vastly more litter in vastly smaller pieces all of which will clearly take vastly longer to pick up.
This again is the situation on Leicester Road opposite Burbage common and all along the A47 toward Triumph.
I still have some pride in my area and to see my and everyone else’s council tax being used to make our litter problem worse is sheer madness. Why are you paying grass cutting contractors to make the problem of litter worse and more visible and then just walking away from it?
This litter is now everywhere and more visible and has been for at least a week.
I am aware of Hinckley councils use of the public picking litter in Burbage common as I have witnessed and helped in this task and now to witness only 100 yards from the common this deliberate mess and misuse of tax payer money shows great contempt for local people willing to help in keeping our borough clean.
With plastic waste high on the agenda at present you have just deliberately and at a cost added to this and made it more costly to pick up if indeed you intend to.
This is complete madness and unfair to anyone who enjoys our environment and pays to have it maintained in their council tax.
Please explain the logic in doing this and why you consider it acceptable to then walk away from the mess generated?
