WASTE collection vehicles should not be in Napier Street prior to the school run on a morning.

That was the assurance given to town councillors in a letter from Ceredigion County Council after concerns had been raised that the waste lorry could be a danger to children being dropped off at the town’s primary school.

The county council said a waste lorry had been in the street before 9am on one occasion but the vehicle was not meant to be there until after 9.30am.

Cllr John Adams Lewis, who is on the school’s governing body, said: “We are trying to get people to walk the children to school. We have spent a lot of money in the area on traffic measures and people who can walk, should walk.”
