Parts of Dunfermline South has been blighted by litter problems for a number of years, and James Calder is campaigning to get this problem sorted out once and for all.
Areas of the ward have a number of issues regarding litter, and James believes that the Council can take proactive measures to resolve this, and he has made this part of his Dunfermline Needs a Fix campaign.
James commented ‘Whenever I walk around some of Dunfermline’s wonderful parkland, I always find it frustrating when I see litter flying around. There are some great community initiatives to deal with this. However, despite the best intentions of the current council administration, they are not doing enough to tackle this blight on the local environment.’
‘I have had some interesting conversations with local residents, including some commenting that wind can blow over recycling bins which adds to this problem. I am a massive fan of recycling and I am sure there must be a way to make sure all recycling is recycled and not becoming part of the litter problem.’
‘If elected, I would campaign to both get this mess sorted out and also to properly deal with the culprits. Moreover, I would also work to have more public bins put in place in our parks, as this to me seems something basic that the Council could achieve with a minimal amount of spending.’
