A council-organised litter pick which involves the local community, its groups and schools is set to launch next month.
South Norfolk’s Big Litter Pick 2016 will run from February 1 until the end of May. Last year a record total of 80 litter picks took place involving over 900 residents from across the district and nearly 2,000 bags of rubbish and recycling were collected.
Every group that takes part in a litter pick has the chance of winning £200 to be spent in their community.
Councillor Kay Mason Billig, cabinet member for the Environment and Recycling said: “South Norfolk Council will provide posters and leaflets to help publicise community litter picks and we will also provide advice and the equipment groups need. When the event is finished we will then come and take the rubbish away.”
