Litter in Cranleigh

Cranleigh in Bloom are taking an active stance against the growing problem of litter in Cranleigh.

The failure to keep the recycling bins in Village Way car park empty has been reported to Waverley Borough Council and their contractors Veolia UK.

Commenting for the Surrey Advertiser, Cranleigh in Bloom chairman Martin Bamford said:

“It has been disappointing to see an increase in litter around the village in recent months. We all want to live and work in a clean and tidy environment.

“The recycling bins in the Village Way car park have over spilled on multiple occasions and litter bins in the High Street are not being emptied as frequently as needed.

“There is anecdotal evidence that the reduced opening hours at the Elmbridge Road Recycling Centre has resulted in more fly-tipping.

“Litter should be a priority for everyone, especially Waverley Borough Council and Surrey County Council, who really need to up their game and provide the facilities paid for via our council taxes.”
