Otley councillor in call to crack down on ‘eyesore’ bins for Tour de France visit
4:00pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A councillor is calling for a clampdown on “eyesore” commercial bins before the Tour de France rolls into West Yorkshire next year.
And he asked the authority’s executive member for the environment, Councillor Mark Dobson (Lab, Garforth & Swillington), to look into the matter to see if a harder line can be taken in dealing with firms who do not deal properly with their rubbish.
Coun Campbell said: “With the highest profile cycling event in the world coming to our town next year it is important we start work now to clear up our streets and show Otley in the best possible light.
“I have called on the council to look at what more can be done to get commercial businesses to take better responsibility for the waste they create. I have had assurances that further work will be carried out to find a resolution.”
