Readers’ View: Litter bugs

Share this article

In Harry’s way at Wisbech over the Christmas period my husband picked up bags with food and packets of open fruit hanging on fence. Bags of rubbish were also scattered all over the place. As good citizen for the neighbourhood, he cleaned it all up took it to waste disposal centre using his petrol. Then there were other bags dumped in the private grounds. We reported it to the owner and he came and saw. The culprits just don’t dump it at the entrance but they have the audacity to come in to Mikanda Close.

Do people not know that it is an offence to fly tip and there is a heavy fine for this?

The dustmen won’t pick it up. Once in a while we get a road sweeper here but it is an unadopted area.
