A survey by Keep Wales Tidy reveals the impact of litter across the country.
The key points are:
- 86.5% of surveyed streets had smoking-related litter on them
- In the worst affected areas, 96.4% of streets were littered with smoking-related litter, predominantly cigarette ends
The Welsh Government is committed to removing the blight of litter from our streets.
Litter is one of the most common forms of abuse that people inflict on the environment of Wales; it is damaging for Wales' local environment and wildlife, and has been shown to have significant negative implications for our economy, through its effect on both tourism and inwards investment.
It is also clear that it has a damaging effect on the general wellbeing of people and their communities.
