    I seem to remember this story from last year. And the year before, and the one before that, etc, etc. It's Student land - what do you expect? They can't take all that shit home with them, so they dump it outside.

    The landlords should be held responsible. They're running a business, so they should dispose of the waste that it generates.

    Did you look at the pictures in the report? Doesn't look like everything was bagged up nicely waiting for collection. They don't care.

    Cathays is a shithole throughout the academic year. Every week during term time there is food waste and household rubbish strewn across the pavements because it's left outside most of the houses in bin liners that then get ripped open.

    Cardiff residents despair at the lack of newsworthy stories in the local media

    Maybe the council should put a skip there at this time every year?
    But students would complain that they can't put their rubbish in it as the locals suddenly got rid of all theirs.

    A lot of our nation's intelligentsia are unwilling or unable to, for instance, put food waste in the caddies provided so then it becomes a nice feeding ground for the seagulls and rats. The council tried to introduce fines for this kind of thing but couldn't work out which half eaten curry belonged to which house.

    crows attack my green recycling bags even if there's no food in there, probably just to see if they can find any. in a few minutes they can leave half the rubbish strewn across the road

    Some places in England don’t have food waste bins. All goes in the black bin. Not a very good excuse but I can see why some students would just chuck it all in the black bags.

    The decadence is off the scale - it's not even a lentil curry.

    You'd think they'd have heard of Cathays by now, it's in the papers every year.

    Maybe it takes some getting used to but they're given guides and you'd think after a couple of weeks they'd learn but nah.

    How do you know which houses are abusing it? The students in my house I rent out said others nearby had filled up their bin, which i know is true as there’s only two of them left so they had little waste…

    Moving out week in Cathays is a seagulls paradise with bins being ripped open by them regularly, and the council do absolutely nothing to mitigate the situation. A number of large biffa bins located on streets throughout Cathays would alleviate a lot of the problem, you'd just need to rely on the bin lids being shut - just lock them at night as a pissed student tipping them over is a banker.

    University is no longer reserved for the elite. The average IQ will be a lot lower since the expansion of Universities.

    nothing to do with intelligence, it's just a bunch of kids living away from home for the first time and acting like kids do.

    not helped by the fact that most of the Victorian or Edwardian era homes like that have little room for putting Wheely bins etc

    Intelligence is everything to do with impulse control and conscientiousness . Leaving rubbish strewn across a street is lower IQ behaviour on a whole. Countries with the highest average IQ are most orderly and clean. Japan, Singapore, Finland, Germany.

    It’s always at the end of June, the council know this. They should just sweep through Cathays like they do every time there’s a rugby match in town, all gone by the next day like it never happened.

    Its really bad and they are not showing any respect for their comunities but I agree, there should be a team on standby to go to the areas quickly and sort it out, they are not going to take loads of rubbish home, it's a big turnover week, the council should be ready and wating to act.

    Problem solved for next year, wake up Cardiff City Council.

    If you can find evidence of who it was you can always attempt to fine them for fly tipping later if it's really bad.

    No doubt the agency’s the students use for accommodation will fine them if they don’t clear the cupboards and junk they’ve amassed out, so what are they going to do? Yep….out it goes. A guy I knew used to go around looking for bikes they couldn’t take with them, just left on the street.
