This is appalling. Litter in our streets and countryside is disfiguring and dangerous, also wasteful when you consider the materials that might be recycled.

However, our councillors might look to themselves before judging the general public.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to dispose of rubbish.

Sometimes petty restrictions are being imposed and worse, extortionate charges are made at the Hampshire waste recycling centres.

It is far more expensive to clear up after fly-tippers than to accept household waste at purpose-built centres.

I would ask the all the local authorities and Veolia, please, to think again.
