Disgusting amount of litter and cigarette butts

Reported via desktop in the Street cleaning category by Local Resident at 13:39, Wednesday 19 June 2024

Sent to Runnymede Borough Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6127644.

Walking into Egham town this morning, the amount of litter & cigarette butts is dreadful. All the gutters around & around the cigarette bins in the new section of Station road outside Liberato & Budgens are littered with cigarette butts. There is litter & rubbish in the flower beds. The pavements are stained with chewing gum and oil spots where cars have been parking where they shouldn't. There was a flytipped black bag & what looked like a large branch dumped against the angled wall outside the hairdressers. There was also a dead bird on the floor outside the hairdressers too. What is worse is I saw the street cleaner with his cart sitting having a drink outside the hair salon on the corner not more than a few feet away & later I passed him walking down the High Street. What does he do? I have seen him on multiple occasions in Spring Rise sitting on residents garden walls "resting" but the streets remain littered & rubbish filled. The whole town looks scruffy & uncared for. I also notice there is graffiti vandalism on some of the pillars and buildings in the high street too, very classy! After all the fanfare about upgrading the town & peacocking about spending 10s of millions on regeneration and in little more than a year it's already looking tatty.
