Bracknell’s Great British Spring Clean
On Saturday morning, (4 th March) more than 100 people turned out to clean up Bracknell in support of the national Great British Spring Clean campaign, backed by Keep Britain Tidy, the Women’s Institute and the RSPCA.
11 separate litter picks were organised across Bracknell. Local residents, Scouts, Guides, and Councillors joined the Deputy Mayors from Bracknell Town Council and Bracknell Forest Council on the litter picks. Bracknell Forest Council’s Parks and Countryside rangers and employees from Mill Park McDonalds also took part.
At the end of the litter picks, all the rubbish was taken to South Hill Park where it was sorted for recycling. Bracknell Forest Council’s Waste and Recycling Team and Bracknell Town Council’s Environment Wardens were on hand to offer advice on the items that could be recycled. Volunteers were also able to enjoy a hot drink and biscuits served by the Town Clerk and Deputy Town Mayor.
Bracknell’s Great British Spring Clean was organised by Bracknell Town Council, Bracknell Forest Council and Continental Landscapes Limited, Bracknell Forest Council’s grounds maintenance and street cleansing contractor
Deputy Town Mayor, Councillor Clive Harrison said: “Thank you to everyone that gave up their time to help with Bracknell’s Great British Spring Clean. Their efforts have helped make Bracknell a cleaner place to live.”
