Litter Pick Up in New Town

Despite some atrocious weather yesterday morning, a determined band of volunteers set out to spend nearly an hour cleaning litter from New Town streets. Some Greens, a Labour supporter and Colchester's Conservative MP Will Quince made a cross-party effort to raise awareness of how we can all do our bit to help to make Colchester litter-free. If everyone just took a small amount of time to pick up a few bits of litter near to their homes then we'd be a fair way to cracking the problem. In just a short time the bags of litter below were collected:
Once this was sorted into recyclables and non-recyclables I was surprised by the sheer amount of cans some people deem fit to just throw onto our streets.

LITTER in Colchester: Your Chance To Do Something About It

Want to do something about litter in Colchester? Then come along to an awareness raising litter pick up in New Town on Saturday 21st November at 10.00 am. The PLACE = meet up outside the Co-Op on Wimpole Road (next to the funeral parlour). The TASK: go out to the nearby streets and pick up five pieces of litter or more if you wish. This should take no more than 20 minutes (probably much less).Then meet back to pool the hoard.
The aim is to raise awareness of the problem and how a small amount of litter picking by everyone can stop New Town and the rest of Colchester looking like a dump. This is non-party political and all are welcome.
