Volunteers thanked for Spring Clean contribution

VOLUNTEERS in Royton contributed to a successful; litter pick across Oldham as part of the borough’s contribution to the Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean campaign.

Bags of rubbish were removed from Tandle Hill Country Park and other areas of the town.

The local authority has now thanked all community groups and associations for their efforts during the Spring Clean which saw tons of rubbish removed from the streets.

Royton South councillor Amanda Chadderton, also deputy Council leader, said:  “Making sure our streets are clean is a priority for Oldham Council

“So, it’s been really encouraging to see so many people out and about doing their bit and picking up litter – you have made a huge difference.

“We know lots of our residents already carry out clean ups on a regular basis. But this extra effort sends out a clear message that Oldhamers don’t want to see litter and waste left in the areas where they live

“Let’s keep this momentum up and if we all work together then we can make sure our streets, parks, countryside and open spaces are cleaner.”

The council supports community litter picks, and District Teams loan out equipment. To do so contact them via Environmental.services@oldham.gov.uk

If you want OMBC to remove bagged litter after an organised group litter pick, agreed dates, times and locations are needed in advance.

However, if you are doing this as an individual, put any waste you collect in your bin at home.
