I just wanted to reply and support a letter about litter in last week’s Express.
I agree we have too much litter in and around the city. It has been a problem for a long time, but does not seem to be getting any better. There are areas that seem to be constantly full of litter which need addressing. I know it cannot be easy for the authorities to catch and challenge the fly tippers and litter droppers everywhere. Maybe we can fund and support a short term ‘blitz’ in our area. I like the suggestion of name and shame. I think people who constantly create litter should be made to clear it up and challenged. We are seeing plans to regenerate parts of Wakefield and improve our area, so lets make that happen with a clean and tidy city for starters.
