Resident fined for littering
24 June 2019
A Ystradgynlais resident has been fined £75 after their litter was found near a housing estate.
Powys County Council's Waste Awareness and Enforcement Team issued the fine after finding litter on the Gurnos cycle path back in March. The litter contained vehicle registration details from a recent service.
The vehicle's registered keeper was traced using the DVLA database and the council took the appropriate action which saw the resident being issued with a £75 fine.
The council is now warning residents to make sure that they dispose of their litter properly by using a litter bin or using their recycling and refuse containers when they get home.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: "Littering is an unpleasant activity which impacts our communities and costs taxpayers to clear up.
"I want to encourage everyone to help keep Powys tidy by always disposing of their waste properly. Our aim is to keep the county clean and to create an environment that attracts tourists and businesses to the area."
