Welcome to our News Page
During this wave of the Covid-19 pandemic we are once again supporting our fantastic volunteers and local groups in line with all the relevant safety advice and social distancing rules to ensure we keep our communities clean and tidy in 2021.
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

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.

Enforcement teams are really cracking down on those who are being irresponsible with their waste. If you're paying please make sure you follow the advice given at:
