Litter on the Streets
Everybody wants to live in a litter-free
environment. Clean streets are important to how good we feel about where we live, and
litter in the streets where we live or in the city centre contributes to how we feel about
our quality of life.
The results from
Cleanliness Standards Surveys undertaken by the Tidy Britain Group in Coventry City Centre
are used as indicators to demonstrate the quality of our streets.
Surveys are not undertaken
every year but are available for 1994, 1996 and 1998. The results show there has been a
movement from litter free sites to sites predominately free of litter (no Litter Free
Zones were found in 1998).
There has been no significant change in
heavily littered sites and a decrease in sites with accumulations of litter.
