Doncaster Council is bringing its ‘Cleaner Greener – This Is My Doncaster’ campaign to Thorne & Moorends in February, as they bid to get local people to take more pride in their community.
The initiative by the council aims to work with the public to increase pride in the borough, and encourage everybody to take responsibility for keeping Doncaster clean.
DMBC says via its website: “The council doesn’t have the massive financial resources needed to keep everywhere spotless, and it already costs us £500,000 each year to pick up dumped rubbish and dropped litter.
“The only way we are going to make a positive impact to protect the environment is by working together with local people”.
The campaign comes to Thorne & Moorends on Thursday 9 February, and members of the public are invited to take part.
Schools and other organisations are set to attend on the day, helping the council to pick litter and plant shrubs in flower beds.
Shrub planting and general litter picking will take place at the Bridge Street car park in Thorne between 9.30am-12pm, whilst a general litter pick will take place at the ‘bull-ring’ in Moorends between 1pm-3.30pm.
People can get involved by attending at either location on the day at the specified times.
