Dear Editor,It's good to see [...]; LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.

Dear Editor,It's good to see North Lanarkshire Council inviting people to join in with a series of health walks across the region [Advertiser, January 22]. I hope they manage to avoid the sea of litter and trash on these walks.

Last summer, the Advertiser covered some clean-ups I did around my area, especially the North Calder heritage trail, which led to me having a protest at the Scottish Parliament.

Unfortunately, the litter situation has got worse - I have been out down the glen in the past couple of weeks but feel as though I'm fighting a losing battle.

The back roads and the side of main and slip roads are a disgrace.

I suggest a simple thing like taxing car and lorry drivers, and especially van drivers, by a fiver a year to spend on this massive problem - to be solely spent on clearing litter from roads, parks, walks and so on.

I think a cleaner environment boosts people's health and wellbeing. James Bergin, Petersburn
