Tackling the "grot spots" in town

April 2013 (2)



THE Litter Group has been in operation for about two years and has already made a significant contribution to the general appearance of the town, parks and open spaces. In addition to monthly Group Picks, volunteers work either in small groups or individually to keep their own locality tidy. Volunteer numbers are growing steadily and this has enabled the group to tackle many more "grot spots" on an ad-hoc basis.

   Predictably, the main litter problem encountered is from food and drink packaging such as takeaways, crisps, sweets, cans and bottles.

   Litter bins are provided and emptied by Streetscape, Cheshire East Council's street cleansing department, and should be used wherever possible. Where no convenient bin is available then rubbish should be taken home for disposal. Litter is an unsightly, unhygienic and anti-social problem that affects everyone and is the responsibility of all.

   An appeal is made to all residents to play their part by picking up the odd item of rubbish that they may see in the street or outside their property and putting it in a nearby litter bin - every little helps.
