Volunteers needed to help clean up the district

The search is on for keen volunteers to join a litter hit squad to help clean up the district.

Malvern Hills District Council plans to introduce a special team to help tackle litter hotspot areas and is looking for volunteers to join the squad.

The new team will be made up of residents, staff and councillors from Malvern Hills District Council, with the first outing planned on Friday 18 November for two hours.

Residents are asked to send in their nominations for litter hotspots that they think are in need of some attention by Friday 11 November.

The council will provide pickers, gloves, bags and collection. Equipment is also available to local community groups who would like to conduct their own litter pick. 

Cllr Bronwen Behan, Portfolio Holder for the Environment at Malvern Hills District Council said: “Overall the cleanliness of the district is of a high standard, but unfortunately there are still some areas where litter louts continue to drop litter.

“Creating our special hit squad is a great way to get out and about and clean parts of the district so that residents and visitors can continue to enjoy this wonderful area”.

Email to volunteer or to nominate a litter hotspot by Friday 11 November.
