Do not waste opportunity to keep parks in Leeds clean - YEP Comment

It is an issue that has dominated the front page of this newspaper time and time again in recent weeks.

Clean up on Woodhouse Moor in Leeds.

But how many more times must visitors to our city’s parks be warned to tidy up after themselves?

We’ve seen unacceptable amounts of rubbish littered across Woodhouse Moor and, in turn, it has seen resources diverted from other parts of the city to simply clean up once again.

But today council chiefs have launched a campaign to keep our green spaces tidy.

New signage has been installed to stop the rise in littering.

Everyone has a responsibility to make sure that they clean up their own mess when visiting our parks.

And this new campaign reminds people of how they can help to support the city’s cherished green spaces which have provided so much joy over the last year.

We just hope that this latest plea doesn’t fall on deaf ears as we approach the summer months when more people look to head outdoors.

Now that truly would be a waste.
