Help to spruce-up Swinton at community litter pick

LITTER pickers are invited to join a community spring clean tomorrow (Thursday).

The spruce-up of Swinton will be taking place from 9am to noon on Thursday, March 8.

The team will be meeting at the Grange Road garage site at the rear of Broadway Diner and all are welcome to join the initiative, which is part of the borough council’s Love Where You Live campaign.

Cllr Emma Hoddinott, RMBC’s cabinet member for waste, roads and community safety, said: “Since the Love Where You Live campaign started we’ve been overwhelmed by the number of volunteers who have come forward to help make a difference in their local area – 86,356 bags of rubbish were collected last year.”

Swinton ward councillor, Ken Wyatt, added: “We hold regular litter picks, at least once a month, and community skips here in Swinton. 

“We’d welcome anyone who'd like to come along and join us." 

Love Where You Live will be holding events throughout March. To find out more visit where you can also report littering issues.
