Help to keep the Cotswolds clean and tidy

Share this article

Litter-pickers across the Cotswolds will be doing their bit this spring to keep their towns and villages clean and tidy.

Cotswold District Council’s annual ‘Spring Clean’ 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.

Groups taking part collect crisp packets, food cartons, drink cans and other litter, and the Council helps out by providing free litter-picking tools, high-visibility tabards, gloves and litter sacks – and arranges for hundreds of sacks of rubbish to be collected afterwards.

Any events held in March and April 2009 and organized through the Council are also covered by its insurance.

Scott Williams, the Waste Manager at Cotswold District Council, said: “The involvement from community volunteers and members of the public to help out with the annual Spring Clean event is 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 Council’s waste department on 01285 623000 or email [email protected]
