Polegate will be getting busy with dustpans and brushes tomorrow (4 March).
We're being encouraged to get involved in cleaning the town up, as part of The Great British Spring Clean.
Wealden District Council is backing the campaign to get half a million people out and about cleaning up their local communities over the weekend of 3-5 of March.
“We are delighted to be supporting this campaign with our own Great Wealden Spring Clean and we encourage as many groups, individuals and organisations as possible to take part,” said Councillor Roy Galley, Portfolio Holder for Waste and Economic Development. “Litter remains a huge problem across the country, causing harm to the environment and wildlife, with councils in England having to spend over £700 million on street cleaning services every year.”
“Wealden are providing a range of support for those who are doing their bit, including free volunteer clean-up kits containing litter pickers and gloves for adults and children as well as bag hoops. We are also distributing special edition waste sacks from our offices in Hailsham and from the libraries across Wealden. Our waste contractor Kier are also helping out by providing a special waste collection service for all the litter picked during the campaign.”
