Nantwich Town Council to launch litter dropping campaign
Dog fouling, dropping litter or dumping rubbish (fly-tipping) are totally unacceptable, and an unsightly blight on our streets and green areas. Over the past year we have seen an increase in littering around the town, and along our canal and river.
The Town Council are set to launch a ‘Dabbers Don’t Drop’ campaign that will begin on 28th May, in line with ‘The Great British Spring Clean’ organised by Keep Britain Tidy.
Posters and banners will be displayed around the town, supported by posts on social media, as a reminder to residents not to drop litter.
Nantwich Town Council are keen to emphasise that tackling litter is not just about one campaign though, it is about sustained action to tackle litter and change behaviour over time. Therefore, the Council is also encouraging schools to join the campaign by educating young people about the impact of litter dropping on our town and environment.
The Council are working on a number of initiatives to help combat litter issues and will continue to work closely with and support the voluntary litter groups in the town.
If you are keen to join a litter picking group, head over to Nantwich Litter Action on Facebook, to find out more about the work they do. And for those already collecting don’t forget to log your efforts with Keep Britain Tidy.
We live in a beautiful town. It is for all of us to keep Nantwich clean and green!
