‘Great Plastic Pick Up’ starts this weekend!

MELKSHAMTown Council is holding a town tidy day with a difference this weekend, as they continue with their war on plastic in the town.

This Sunday, 13thMay, from 1pm until 3pm, the council will be taking part in ‘The Great Plastic Pick Up’, joining communities across the UKin a national campaign to clear streets and green spaces of plastic litter and recycle everything collected where possible.

The council is also using the day to promote their membership to the Refill campaign, which allows the public to use the tap at the Town Hall to fill up their reusable drinking containers with water, rather than purchase plastic bottles.

Deputy town clerk Clare Harris said, “We’re asking anyone coming to the special town tidy day to bring their reusable drinking containers to fill up at the Town Hall on the day, rather than buy drinks,” said Clare. “We want this day to be as plastic-free as possible!”

Anyone interested in taking part should meet at the Town Hall on the day. Participants are  advised to wear suitable outdoor clothes. Tools and gloves will be provided.
