Community comes together to clean-up Radyr

Bryn Deri pupils helped in the community clean up

A team of 46 volunteers from Radyr joined forces for Keep Wales Tidy’s community clean-up event last month.

Local residents, staff from MGY Cardiff Estate Agents, Radyr Library and teachers and pupils from Bryn Deri Primary School came together to remove litter from around the streets of Radyr, Cardiff.  The volunteers collected 25 bags of rubbish, with drinks-related waste (i.e. plastic bottles) the most commonly found item.

The clean-up was the latest in series of community events coordinated by environmental Keep Wales Tidy and supported by Redrow Homes – one of the UK’s leading residential housing developers.

Keep Wales Tidy is working in partnership with Redrow to care for the environment at Plasdŵr and the surrounding areas.

Gareth Davies from Keep Wales Tidy said:

“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Redrow Homes and making a positive difference to the environment in and around Plasdŵr. We all have a part to play in caring for where we live, and the Radyr clean-up was a perfect example of what local communities can achieve when they work together.

“I’d like to say a special thank you to everyone at Radyr Library who helped promote the clean-up provided much needed refreshments to our hardworking volunteers.”

Bev Wookey, sales director at Redrow Homes South Wales, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the clean-up efforts at Radyr as part of Keep Wales Tidy’s brilliant work.

“Maintaining the environment in and around Plasdŵr is of paramount importance and we are fully committed to supporting the cause for the long-term.”

A community meeting is planned to see if there is interest in forming a dedicated litter-picking group for Radyr.
