A COM­MU­NITY day has been held to clean up a foot­path in Aber­cynon.

More than 10 bags of rub­bish were col­lected by vol­un­teers work­ing on the path lead­ing from David Dower Close to Tres­sil­ian Place, known lo­cally as Farm Wood Path.

They were as­sisted on the day by the RCT Coun­cil’s cleans­ing team and staff from Cynon Taf Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Large house­hold items that had been dumped on the steep bank were also col­lected. Over­growth along­side the path was cut and over­hang­ing tree branches were cut back. The paths were cleared of fallen leaves and new lit­ter bins have been in­stalled at ei­ther end.

The com­mu­nity cleanup day is the lat­est in the sea­sonal pro­gramme of clean-up days planned for Aber­cynon ward by coun­cil­lors Rhys Lewis and Elaine Ge­orge.

They say they are com­mit­ted to do­ing their bit to im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment in their com­mu­nity and ask res­i­dents to dis­pose of their lit­ter and waste con­sid­er­ately. The coun­cil­lors aim to hold a clean-up day in ev­ery part of the ward through­out the year and res­i­dents are al­ways wel­come to join in.
