Councillors propose Litter Strategy for Borough

1 Mins read

Causeway Councillors Chris McCaw and Angela Mulholland have thanked local volunteers who are taking part in litter picks across the area and called for council to introduce a long term strategy to deal with litter and to change attitudes on the issue.

Speaking at a local litter pick in Portstewart, Alliance Councillor Chris McCaw said, “It shows real people power that volunteers are choosing to help out by picking litter in the area. The number of visitors has increased rapidly with easing of travel restrictions and this has led to an increase in litter, although this has been reduced by the hard work of council officers in employing more Environmental Cleansers in a short space of time. We need a change of mindset on litter.“

Independent Councillor Angela Mulholland continued, “We need to make sure that Council’s resources are being targeted in the best way possible, to protect our beautiful natural environment in Causeway Coast and Glens and to make sure we are using ratepayers’ money responsibly. I hope our proposal for a comprehensive litter strategy, working with community, business and schools, will be supported by other councillors.”

The Councillors will be consulting with the local community to find out what they would like to see from a litter strategy and then working with Council to deliver it.
