Residents can help give Rugby a spring clean by joining the Community Clear Up Day.

Rugby Borough Council has backed Keep Britain Tidy’s campaign to spruce up the country on the first day of spring - Saturday March 21.

A Community Clear Up Day gives everyone a chance to show we care about our shared environment and take pride in the borough we live in.

Communities in the borough have been invited to support the event by organising litter picks on the day - with the council supplying volunteers with the tools for the job.

Residents interested in organising a litter pick can also download posters and banners to promote events from the Keep Britain Tidy website - www.keepbritaintidy.org

Cllr Sally Bragg, responsible for sustainable environment at Rugby Borough Council, said: “The council invests a lot of time and money in keeping Rugby clean and green throughout the year but this spring time push to involve residents, whether it be in a parish or urban area, will help clear the rubbish dropped by the irresponsible minority.

“A Community Clear Up Day gives everyone a chance to show we care about our shared environment and take pride in the borough we live in.”

The council can provide rubbish bags, gloves and pickers to volunteers - and can arrange to collect the rubbish at the end of the event.

Residents interested in organising a litter pick to support the Community Clear Up Day can contact the council’s environmental protection team on (01788) 533857 or email ept@rugby.gov.uk
