Litter Picking – Wellingborough Eco Group

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE CORONA PANDEMIC

This month our two hour tidy up will be litter picking Croyland Gardens on Saturday 28th March. It takes place between 10am-12 midday. Our recycling station will be set up from 9:30 in Morrison’s Public Car Park.

Croyland Gardens is just off of Morrison’s Car Park, drivers can use this parking for three hours or can park in neighboring streets. For walkers and cyclists, the gardens are close to the town centre (approximately 5 minutes walk)

Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19) we have the following restrictions for litter pickers:

  • DON’T COME IF YOU HAVE A COUGH, ARE SHORT OF BREATH OR HAVE A FEVER.
  • DO OBSERVE RULES OF SELF-SERVICE AND OF TWO METRES SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES.

Always stay safe – We will expect that all litter pickers should maintain at least the distance of an outstretched arm and a litter picker from each other (two metres) that all equipment, including litter pickers, gloves (bring your own if you can) hi-vis vests and bags, are self selected and returned to the recycling station; and that all bags of collected litter are taken to a collection point by those that picked it.

Wellingborough Norse have again kindly let us borrow their litter picking equipment, and will be collecting what we have litter picked at the end of our two hours. Please again remember the rules of self service and two metres social distancing when they are collecting the bags.
