The Council has pledged its support for this year`s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign which runs from 22 March to 23 April will see up to half a million people taking action to clean streets, parks and beaches across the country.
The Council`s Street Cleansing team is encouraging local residents and community groups across Cannock Chase District to get involved and will be providing litter picking equipment* and collecting bags of rubbish.
*Please note: Limited stock is available, so equipment will be issued on a first come, first serve basis.
Contact the Council`s Street Cleansing team on 01543 462621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

This year`s campaign will not only see tonnes of litter being removed from the environment on our doorstep, it also aims to rescue thousands of the plastic bottles and aluminium drink cans that are simply thrown on the ground but could very easily be recycled.
Using the `three bags full` approach, volunteers will be asked to separate the litter they pick into three bags; one for plastic bottles; one for aluminium cans and a third for the rest of the rubbish.
The Council will then collect these bags to ensure that they are recycled appropriately.
