The End of 2020

During the last quarter we've collected, with the assistance of our fantastic volunteer team, just over 1600 bags of waste. Those volunteers who supported us, of all ages, gave 584 hours of their time. Thank you to everyone who took part, we really appreciate all your support.

More Hazards than Usual

We are working hard supporting our communities in picking up all the rubbish and litter left behind by those less thoughtful. Facing on a daily basis the hazards of this work, but now there are biohazards too. Please make sure to dispose of all your rubbish sensibly. Remember we want to go home to our families knowing everyone is safe.
