South Wales Echo - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS was the dis­gust­ing scene af­ter dozens of nap­pies and a pram were dumped just yards from a pri­mary school.

The photo, taken near Goe­tre Pri­mary School on the Gurnos Es­tate, Merthyr Tyd­fil, and posted on­line yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, has been widely con­demned on so­cial me­dia and by a lo­cal coun­cil­lor.

Post­ing the pic­ture to Face­book group Merthyr Coun­cil Truths, Lee Heg­gie wrote: “There is no ex­cuse in the world for this.

“This is sheer filth and the lazy brain­less per­son who is re­spon­si­ble for dump­ing these used nap­pies at the sub­way near Goe­tre School should go back and dis­pose of your filth the proper way like other res­i­dents do.

“This will now be left for our cleans­ing team to sort out, why should they have to pick up your filth? Filthy that’s what this is.”

Mike O’Neill, a lo­cal coun­cil­lor for Gurnos, said: “It is ex­tremely sad to see im­ages like this.

“We have amenity ser­vices nearby and the coun­cil takes very se­ri­ously its re­spon­si­bil­ity to keep our streets clean and free from rub­bish.

“This is clearly a de­lib­er­ate and cal­cu­lated fly-tip­ping in­ci­dent and such a blight on our bril­liant lo­cal pri­mary school. If any­one is hav­ing dif­fi­culty with re­cy­cling or waste col­lec­tion they should con­tact the coun­cil, not com­mit mind­less acts like this.

“I sym­pa­thise with the col­leagues who will clean this need­less waste.

“If any­one knows the cul­prit, please come for­ward.”
