Dropping litter costs the taxpayer money

 July 2013                                                            







A RECENT Group Pick by Nantwich Litter Group saw 18 volunteers turn out to tidy an area including The Barony Park, Barony Road and Middlewich Road up to the A500 roundabout, together with a number of adjoining smaller roads, the path behind Sainsbury's garage and down Beam Heath Way.

   The Pick ended with welcome refreshments at the Pillory House coffee shop in Prince's Court.
   The Keep Britain Tidy charity has warned that the annual cost of keeping the nation's streets clean could soon exceed 1billion. Litter dropped each year amounts to around 30 million tonnes. Smoking-related litter (such as cigarette butts, cigarette packets and lighters) is the most prevalent, followed by fast food items.

   The Charity's chief executive, Phil Barton, has said "Enough is enough. It is time for the Government, businesses and the rest of the population to make a choice and act on it. Which side of the fence are you on?"

   Dropping litter costs the taxpayer money!


l Anyone interested in coming along to lend a hand at a future litter pick, please contact Team Leader Joyce Webb on 01270 626435 or email joycewebb47@hotmail.com. New volunteers will be welcome and litter picking kit can be provided. Details will be posted in What's On - General on this website.

Among nettles and under fencing, this litter in

 the Barony Road area isn't easy to collect
