Denbighshire’s Clean Streets
Denbighshire has some of the cleanest streets in Wales – and that’s official.

looked at whether there was evidence of smoking, drinking, confectionery , fast food, drinks bottles and foam polystyrene. councils are also graded on dog fouling, vandalism, weeds, graffiti, fly-posting and chewing gum staining.
Ward, Head of Highways and Environment, said: “Having clean and tidy streets is one of the key priorities for the Council and we are delighted with these results.”
“The message definitely seems to be getting through locally as well as nationally and we would like to thank Denbighshire residents for their efforts in looking after their community and showing pride in their streets.
“Many residents tell us that having clean streets is a matter they want to see the Council addressing and we will not become complacent, with our efforts to improve the quality of life for local residents continuing”.
