Help To Keep the Cotswolds Clean and Tidy
Litter-pickers across the Cotswolds will be doing their bit this spring to keep their towns and villages clean and tidy.
Cotswold District Councilís annual ĎSpring Cleaní event allows community groups to get out and improve the appearance of their town or village by targeting known litter hot-spots within their area.
Eight towns and parishes have already signed up to the 2010 event, where groups taking part will collect crisp packets, food cartons, drink cans and other litter. The Council provides free litter-picking tools, high-visibility tabards, gloves and litter sacks for the task Ė and arranges for hundreds of sacks of rubbish to be collected afterwards.
Any events held in March and April 2010 and organised through CDC are also covered by the Councilís insurance.
Scott Williams, the Waste Manager at Cotswold District Council, said: "The efforts of community volunteers and members of the public to help out with the annual Spring Clean event are always greatly appreciated.
"The Council has a limited budget to clean the streets and look after the upkeep of the District. Our waste teams cannot be everywhere at once, so it is hugely encouraging that so many volunteers are prepared to support our efforts to keep the Cotswolds clean."
If you would like to organise a clean-up and would like to order bags and gloves, please contact Cotswold District Councilís waste hotline on 01285 623123.
Alternatively, please email the Councilís Environmental Wardens at [email protected] or [email protected]
