Clean up Wiltshire

Clean up Wiltshire

A series of roadshows will be taking place from the 12 to 20 February to encourage everyone to:

•Stop dropping litter
•Switch to reusable
•Recycle
•To sign up for the Great British Spring Clean

#CleanUpWilts is a countywide litter campaign sponsored by Landmarc Support Services, which aims to reduce the £2.5 million bill taxpayers currently pay to clean up litter in Wiltshire.

The roadshows will be in Salisbury’s Guildhall Square on the 13th and 20th February. Many schools, groups, residents, community groups and councillors are already signed up to run litter picks over the weekend of the 2, 3, 4 March for the Great British Spring Clean event. If you would like to join in or organise a litter pick, please contact Karen Linaker on 01722 434697 Karen.linaker@wiltshire.gov.uk
