At Keep Wales Tidy, we have a dedicated team of experts who continually research and monitor local environmental quality (LEQ) issues to try to come up with innovative solutions to tackle the issues which affect our communities.
We independently help report cleanliness levels to local authorities and Welsh Government, while working closely with partners to make sure that the environment and sustainability of Wales is at the forefront of policy matters.
