Rotarians call on public to continue litter campaign
Mansfield Rotary Club is again urging people to take part in its initiative to clean up the town — the Just Bin It scheme.
Rotarians are providing litter-pick tools free to anyone who will pick up litter around their neighbourhood, roadsides, pavements, parks and schools.
Throughout winter many supporters of the campaign have continued to help keep their locality clean by picking up rubbish.
One Mansfield Rotarian, Stewart Rickersey, said he and his wife had recently filled three rubbish bags with assorted rubbish.
But he added: “It’s a constant effort to keep our streets tidy.
“The mindless few continue to drop their litter, lottery tickets, cans, covid face coverings, empty cigarette packets and much more that would be impolite to mention in print. Often the rubbish is dropped within a few yards of a letter bin.”
He added that Mansfield Rotary is committed to providing a litter picking tool to anyone who wants to play their part in keeping their neighbourhood clean.
Those interested are asked to register on Mansfield Rotary’s website — https://mansfieldrotary.co.uk/mansfields-big-clean — or call 01623 706540 and leave a message.
Kate Allsop, president of Mansfield Rotary Club, added: “We are appealing for residents in the Mansfield area to come forward and litter pick in the vicinity of their own homes or whilst they might be out exercising or walking their dog.
“Let’s all make a positive difference to our town in these difficult times.”
