COMMUNITY LITTER PICKING PROJECT FOR HERTFORD
Posted on 17/01/2017
Does litter in your local area cause a nuisance? Would you be prepared to help keep the road, footpath or green area near your house clean and tidy?
The Mayor of Hertford is delighted to launch Hertford Town Council’s Community Litter Picking Project.
The project is an initiative designed to encourage residents to volunteer to care for their community and local environment by collecting litter from their streets or local area. This project is not designed to replace the regular street cleansing regime carried out by East Herts Council, but to supplement it.
Members of the public are asked to choose an area which they would wish to ‘adopt’ and the Town Council will supply the appropriate equipment, such as litter pickers, hi-visibility jackets and plastic rubbish sacks. The volunteer can go out as often or as little as they choose, but just half an hour once a week will make a big difference to a clean and tidier town.
If you would like to take part in the project, please register your interest by contacting Hertford Town Council on 01992 552885 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be contacted by an officer who will arrange a convenient time to meet with you for an informal chat and a health and safety briefing.
The Mayor of Hertford Cllr Dr Linda Radford said ‘This is a fantastic activity for residents, schools, families or businesses to become involved in and will spread the anti-litter message whilst encouraging the community to take pride in our Town’
