Litter Picking

2019

Litter picking is a core activity for the group. Unfortunately there are still too many people who choose to ignore litter bins, but things are improving. We do a litter patrol in the centre of the town every Saturday morning, and on Wednesday evenings during the summer months as well. We have an annual river clean up which is well supported by local families who turn up for the day.

We start them at a young age!

Plaza Village power wash

Noel, our Tidiness and Litter Control officer, approached Purple Properties who manage Plaza Village and requested that they power clean that area. On May 2nd STT members came to see the result and were very impressed with their efforts.

Billy Goat

Our latest acquisition got its first trial run on April 6th 2019. This machine is intended to clear the streets of small litter items, especially cigarette butts.
