We are asking individuals, community groups, schools and businesses to take collective responsibility for keeping the Borough clean and tidy and encourage everyone to recycle more. If you’d like to organise an event, we can help by loaning equipment.  We will also arrange the collection of the waste when the event is finished.  Find out more on our Clean and Green page.
