Big Litter Pick

Saturday 20 May 2017 14:00–16:00

The Town Council has two members of staff who carry out caretaking duties and litter pick a number of open spaces in Kesgrave to try to keep it spick and span.  However, the Caretakers cannot cover the whole of Kesgrave and if it is to continue being in the top ten places to live, we need to all be proactive by

  • Setting a good example to children and young people, don’t be a litter lout yourself and tell your children or grandchildren that dropping litter is not acceptable.
  • Report fly tipping to East Suffolk Council, make a note of the day, date and time you saw the tipping, how many people and what they looked like.  What they were doing and what was tipped.  Any vehicles involved (make, colour and registration number).  Where you were when you saw the fly-tipping, what kind of view you had, the weather and light conditions.  Report by phone 01394 383789 or email customerservices@eastsuffolk.gov.uk, you can also use these contact details to report people who do not clear up after their dog.
  • Join us on a Community Litter Pick for Kesgrave on Saturday 20 May at 2pm at the Council Office on the corner of Ferguson Way.  There will be litter picking sticks available so that you do not need to use your hands or bend over.  There will be bags and some hoops to hold bags open.  The full bags will be picked up later in the day and take to a central point so that Suffolk Coastal Norse can take it all away.

If you are not able to join us for the Big Litter Pick, you can take part by just picking up any litter dropped near to your property if you are able, put it in your usual household collection bins, don’t pick up hazardous waste, phone Kesgrave Town Council for advice 01473 625179.
