Residents join in spring clean.

ALMOST 40 tonnes of rubbish have been collected by residents in Caerphilly county borough as part of the Big Spring Clean 2015.

Individuals, schools and community groups teamed up with the council's Tidy Towns Team to improve their environment by collecting litter, cleaning graffiti and planting flowers.

Cabinet member for Community and Leisure Service, councillor David Poole, said: "The continued support of the volunteers sends a strong message that fly-tipping, littering and graffiti will not be accepted.

"I would like to thank everybody involved for their hard work and brilliant dedication in supporting the Tidy Towns Team to make the county borough a better place to live, work and visit."
