Yet More Rubbish – No Change There Then Hilary Jones

So Whitby is one of the cleanest towns in the country ? Here’s what happens when you take a short detour from the usual tourist routes. This is the area at the back of Church Street only seconds from one of  Whitby’s main thoroughfares. Its rubbish here, rubbish there, rubbish every f****** where.

The area at the back of church street is filthy. It resenmbles a rubbish tip.

    Well done, Glenn. If only our elected representatives (and local print-media reporters) would get out and investigate the preposterous self-congratulatory propaganda of SBC for themselves:

    http://www.real-whitby.co.uk/whitbys-streets-officially-cleanest-oh-really

    The truth is that once you step away from the main tourist thoroughfares, you will find astonishing amounts of litter, cans, bottles, nappies, syringes – you name it.

    That said, I cannot praise too highly the diligence (and the good-natured morning greetings) of Keith Gilpin – SBC’s east-side street and beach cleaner. Pity only that diligence and friendliness occur in SBC in inverse proportion to rank – with the rudest and least conscientious at the very top of the pile.

    I know Keith well and have for a lot of years. A true gent in every sense of the word. I must admit that a lot of the lads who work for SBC in Whitby do a really good job.

    I’ll ask my criminal associates, if they would be willing to litter-pick the East -Side, as part of our community punishments.

    That would be a good idea Peter. After you’ve finished painting all the rotten woodwork of course. I believe my eldest lad is one of your associates on the chain gang by the way.

    Do SBC know about this?

    I have an acquaintance, who has been telling me about the promises and delays from SBC in relation to vast amounts of garbage in his local community. Lots of communications making promises of “sorting the problem out”, but absolutely no action on SBC’s part.

    That must be what the exhorbitant Council Tax is paid for – them to sit on their asses!

    Yet I was only just reading on the Gazette website that unemployment was high in our area. Those on the rock ‘n’ roll should go and pick this up

    Rudy and Frank,

    What about using all the school kids who are on holiday. They could move the rubbish if the gentlemen at the Council are too busy..

    Those on the dole who are getting paid out of our taxes should pick it up along with anyone caught dropping it instead of getting a fine! School children on holiday should not be picking up litter – they should be out playing and being children!!

    I am somewhat confused when someone is sentenced with a community service order I foolishly thought it meant that they had to do work in the community or am I on the wrong track here it seems to me that there are the manpower resources(plenty of them from what I am told) so wheres the problem.
