Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has joined Council workers to go litter picking and emptying bins in the constituency.
Mr David met with Council employees at 7.15am and worked with them in the Caerphilly basin area. He joined with Council workers for one of their shifts so that he could gain first-hand experience of what it is like to work as a refuse collector.
Mr David said, “Working as a Council refuse collector is often a thankless task. In my few hours on the shift with the Council workers I hope to begin to get an appreciation of what the job involves. As a Member of Parliament it is all too easy to become distanced from the people you represent. I hope that by me joining the litter picking team it will help to improve my understanding of what working as a little picker is like”.
