Community Action – Litter Picks

Working with Keep Wales Tidy, and all Local Authorities in Wales the Council is part of ‘Caru Cymru an initiative to eradicate litter and waste that will create a clean and safe environment and make a positive difference to our planet.

The vision for ‘Caru Cymru’ ‘Love Wales’ is to be interwoven into Welsh life so that it becomes second nature for everyone to do the right thing, from taking litter home and cleaning up after your dog, to recycling ‘on the go’, reusing and repairing.
