North Wales council blame visitors and residents for mess at World Heritage Site

Unemptied and overfilled bins meant Conwy’s High Street pavements were strewn with chip shop cartons, ice cream containers, and pizza boxes during the busy Easter holidays.

A NORTH Wales council has blamed the public for rubbish-strewn streets at a World Heritage Site after bins were left unemptied over the bank-holiday weekend.

Unemptied and overfilled bins meant Conwy’s High Street pavements were strewn with chip shop cartons, ice cream containers, and pizza boxes during the busy Easter holidays.

It is not the first time unemptied bins has led to rubbish-strewn streets in the town during busy holiday periods.

Unemptied and overfilled bins meant Conwy’s High Street pavements were strewn with chip shop cartons, ice cream containers, and pizza boxes during the busy Easter holidays.

A spokeswoman for Conwy County Council blamed the public for creating the mess.

“Over the bank holiday weekend, council staff were out from 7 am to 6 pm, emptying bins and litter picking at key tourist destinations across the county,” she said.

“We expect visitors and residents to act responsibly with their litter – plenty of bins are provided around Conwy town, and there is no excuse for dropping rubbish on the floor. If a bin is full, people should use the next available bin instead.”

In July last year Conwy County Council received complaints about empty take-away cartons, chip shop trays, and fizzy drink cans strewn across the town’s Morfa Bach car park.

Conwy blamed the mess on seagulls, despite the 217-space pay-and-display car park having anti-seagull bins.

Sunday Times judges recently described Conwy as one of the best places to live in the UK.
