Your District Council, whose Clean & Green Team keep streets clean, is getting welcome voluntary support from litter pickers, who use pink bags provided by the council.
A spokesperson said:
“The bags are pink to distinguish them from fly-tipped rubbish. Local residents on their regular walks who want to pick up litter to help keep their environment clean use the bags and we collect them when they are full.
“The bags are often left for collection by our litter bins but where there are no bins nearby the litter pickers report the location for us to collect. We aim to pick up the bags by the next working day.”With this year’s Great British Spring Clean taking place between 28 May and 13 June, we're encouraging community groups and individuals to step forward to join the campaign.
If any local community wishes to take part in the campaign or organise a litter pick at any time of year contact the District Council’s Community Development Officer Emma Mortimer by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
