The ‘Love East Suffolk’ litter pick scheme is returning to encourage, enable and reward people to show some love for where we live.
‘Love East Suffolk’ gives community groups a winning way of cleaning up their neighbourhood, while helping themselves by offering £20 to their nominated community fund or charity for litter picks carried out during March, April or May.
All registered groups who carry out their litter pick during this time, will also be entered into a £200 grand prize draw, with prizes provided by the Council’s partners, East Suffolk Norse.
The local scheme ties in with the Great British Spring Clean, which takes place between 20th March and 13th April - and aims to bring together people across the country, to clean up litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastline.
East Suffolk Norse can provide equipment, including sacks, to groups on request and will also arrange for gathered litter to be collected. Litter pick sticks, bag hoops and green vests can also be loaned out, subject to availability.
