05 Oct 2012


Following the cuts in services delivered by South Somerset County Council agreement was reached with Streetscene that they would clean the main streets on Sunday morning and that they would provide extra litter pick tools and bags for volunteers to clean the side streets and the Recreation Ground. Members of the Forum, Town Councillors and residents met on the Recreation Ground at 9am on Sunday 7 October. Pairs were despatched around the town and on the recreation ground and in just under 2 hours had collected 11 bags of rubbish, 5 of which were taken away by Streetscene personnel with the other 6 stored for collection from the wardens caged area on Monday 9 October. All the litter collected was sorted so that 2 bags of glass bottles, 2 bags of drink cans and 2 bags of plastic bottles were taken to the Recycling Centre. .
