REPLACE AND IMPROVE THE BEACH BINS in New Quay, Ceredigion
04/07/23 - I'm pleased to report that as a result of the outrage over the lack of bins on New Quay main beach, the Council have employed a full time operative (from about 10am until 6pm) whose job it is to pick up litter from the beach and empty bins on the sea-front (only certain ones get used and they need emptying more than once a day ...unsurprisingly!)
The guy is sweet and very cheerful, helpful and polite - he is also great at his job; the beach is spotless and i hope he is paid well. However, the town has been quiet so far this year, so i hope he doesn't get overwhelmed in the school holidays. I also wonder about the costs to the taxpayers and would like to think that all the fast-food outlets are contributing to his salary because the vast majority of the litter comes from their customers (some more than others).
Anyway, well done everybody for speaking out and supporting this campaign.
