'Bin it' says Wisbech Street Pride members after latest litter pick
Wisbech Street Pride members are urging the public to use rubbish bins after completing yet another litter pick in the town.
Members carried out their cleaning in roads that included Victoria Road, Sandle Road and Weasenham Lane and was done as part of a wider campaign targeting arterial routes into Wisbech.
This is so that visitors approaching the town have a better experience of it.
Rubbish collected typically includes cans, plastic bottles, takeaway food wrappers and glass bottles or jars. Some of these shatter and leave shards that are dangerous for the townsfolk as well as pets and wildlife.
Broken glass on playing fields is particularly dangerous. The group strongly encourages the use of public bins, many of which now have separate facilities for items that can recycled.
Regular picks are carried out on the second Sunday of each month and are carried out entirely by volunteers with the support of Fenland District Council.
The group works in conjunction with Wisbech in Bloom to make the town more attractive for everyone. Equipment is available and new members are warmly welcomed. Contact can be made through the Facebook group.
