Droitwich Spa Litter Squad launches new campaign to get more bins in the town

Droitwich Editorial 18th Jan, 2021   0

A CAMPAIGN has been launched by the Droitwich Spa Litter Squad to get more bins in the town and highlight the blight of road signs not being collected once they have served their purpose.

Some bins have been secured on the A38 bypass and are already been used extensively but another section – from the Kidderminster Road to the Chateau Impney – is heavily littered.

Signage is also needed for the Berryhill Industrial Estate and the bypass to highlight to overnight truckers not to use the area as a toilet.

The Litter Squad is now up to 255 members with many doing solo litterpicks around the town.

Clive Shearman who started the group said: “We are looking forward to group picks once the lockdown is over.

“Wychavon District Council litter crews are also doing a fine job collecting the piles of rubbish we gather.”

He added the number of signs the Litter Squad has recovered so far would run into more than £1,000 which is a large waste of money.

Go to wychavon.gov.uk/adopt-a-street to sign up to Wychavon’s Adopt a Street scheme, backed by the Litter Squad.
