South Norfolk Council launches Big Litter Pick
Pick up the litter in your locality and you could also pick up a £200 prize from South Norfolk Council.
The council has just launched this year’s Big Litter Pick which runs until the end of May. Last year nearly 2,000 bags of rubbish and recycling were collected
We want to continue working with our communities and encourage others to care about and take a pride in where they live
Councillor Kay Mason Billig, cabinet member for the environment, said: “The popularity of The Big Litter Pick is amazing. It is wonderful to see so many children getting involved and learning at an early age how important it is to dispose of your rubbish responsibly. We want to continue working with our communities and encourage others to care about and take a pride in where they live.”
The council will provide posters and leaflets to publicise community litter picks, and take the rubbish away.
All schools and groups that take part have a chance to win one of 20, £200 prizes to be spent in their communities and all groups that take part will be given a £20 voucher. To take part, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0808 168 3333
