The efforts of local residents from Eastwood who are participating in Keep Scotland Beautiful’s annual Spring Clean campaign, have been praised.
The environmental charity is supporting communities to take part and help remove litter from their local area – transforming the places that they live in and improving the areas that they care for.
Throughout April and May, Keep Scotland Beautiful will be working with Eastwood residents, businesses, schools and community groups to arrange their own clean up events to remove rubbish from local streets, parks and public areas.
Neil Bibby MSP said: “I am proud of the actions of local residents from Eastwood who are participating in the annual Spring Clean Campaign - helping to remove more litter and preserve the places that we live in. I hope that the 2019 Spring Clean Campaign is a fantastic success.”
Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, commented: “Keep Scotland Beautiful is calling for people across the country to take part in our annual Spring Clean campaign. Every April and May thousands of volunteers take to the streets and remove a significant amount of litter from their local communities.
“We are very proud of everyone’s hard work and hope that everyone will take part - helping to make 2019 the most successful Spring Clean campaign to date.”
