We are regularly finding our beautiful country lanes blighted by fly tipping. This is usually someone having paid a man with a van or weed growers dumping their waste.
We are a group of like minded locals who want to have a positive impact on our community in keeping it as litter free as possible. We have created a WhatsApp group to communicate intentions to pick, identify areas of concern, set dates and post results. We are flexible in how we work. Sometimes individually or in any size teams.
We clear litter from the streets of Harwood and Bradshaw on a weekly basis, maintain two community bins and support locals in clearing fly tipped waste. We have supported Eagley Junior school in setting up an after school litter picking group through a presentation and supervised their initial litter picks. They are now functioning in their own right with our help if requested. The Oaks and Sharples Primary have also requested our input in setting up groups. So far they have been given my PowerPoint, ( Covid halted this)
