The Sustainability Working Group hosted a lunchtime clean up around Princess Park and surrounding areas on Thursday 15 June. The activity aimed to get staff active on their lunch break whilst cleaning up around the river and highlighting how much litter is making it’s way into our environment. A total of 6 council staff participated in the clean up – with around 100 litres collected in about 30 minutes. The location chosen is directly behind the Council offices.
Some of the litter collected by Mel during the lunchtime clean up. A lot of the litter collected was recyclable plastic bottles and glass aswell as aluminium cans.
Litter collected at the same site for Business Clean Up Day earlier this year on Tuesday 28 February 2017.
