Virginia Tidy Towns “disappointed” with littering in the town

A local Tidy Towns group says it’s disappointing that people still leave rubbish behind them in public spaces.

Mags Matthews from Virginia Tidy Towns says it’s not responsible behaviour for people to continue to leave litter in public areas and have someone else tidy up.

She was speaking after photos were posted online of rubbish left by the lake in Virginia at the weekend. Mags Matthews said it is the work of volunteers that keeps the town clean.
