15th March 2016 Posted in Council News
200 bags of rubbish were collected on Saturday morning (12th March 2016) from nine litter picks across Bracknell.
Bracknell Town Council organised the litter picks for the national Keep Britain Tidy and Country Life magazine Clean for The Queen campaign. The campaign’s aim is to clean up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.
Over 100 people took part in the litter picks, including Scouts and Guides from across Bracknell, many local residents and Town Councillors and employees. Mill Park McDonalds in Wildridings, donated litter picking sticks and employees from the restaurant also took part.
Councillor Clive Harrison, Chairman of the Environmental Services Committee said: “Thank you to everyone that came along to Saturday’s litter picks. It was great so many people gave up their morning to help clean up Bracknell for The Queen.”
Cllr Harrison added: “Not only were a huge number of bags of rubbish collected, but some more unusual items including a car bumper, bicycle, shopping trolley and some weighing scales!”
