Saturday 21st Sep 2019

Denbighshire has been praised for its clean streets by an environmental body.

Keep Wales Tidy has ranked the county as the second best in Wales for the percentage of streets predominantly free of litter and refuse (98.7 per cent) and fifth in terms of the Cleanliness Indicator Score (74).

Keeping the county’s streets clean is the responsibility of Denbighshire County Council.

Cllr Brian Jones, Denbighshire’s lead member for Highways, said: “I would like to thank all the staff members who work hard to keep the streets of Denbighshire clean and tidy as well as residents and visitors who play a very important role in keeping our streets clean.

“This year’s rankings are an improvement on last year’s figures and show a continued and upward trend.”

Keep Wales Tidy surveyed a total of 3,216 streets across Wales between April 2018 and March 2019, with Denbighshire being surveyed between July 2 and 5, 2018.

Cllr Tony Thomas, Denbighshire’s lead member for the Environment, said: “This is fantastic news for Denbighshire and shows the commitment in the county to improving our environment.

“Clean and tidy streets help give a sense of pride in our neighbourhoods and complements the work we are doing to protect wildlife and green areas in Denbighshire which is a priority under our Corporate Plan to support community well-being and increase economic prosperity.”
