Hyndland Community Litter Pick Sat 8 th Dec
The Lane It’s a place frequented by a lot of our school pupils, its where they “hang around” But it turned into a massive rubbish bin…
Around Our Community A lot of our friends, family & neighbours live in surrounding area. They are being affected by the amount of rubbish that gets thrown on their streets.
Time For Change The Eco-Committee led a Litter Pick Up last Dec 8 th. It was well attended by pupils, staff, parents and councillors who braved the bitter cold winters morning (and on a Saturday!)
Here’s what we had to pick up…….
Rubbish There are several bins in and around our community and school. There should be no excuse to drop litter. If the bin is full, walk to the next one, its probably only 5 meters away. OR keep your rubbish until you do find a bin.
Be Proud This is your community. You should take pride in it. Do your best to keep it clean. Don’t drop litter, put it in the bin!
Final thought… If the litter problems do not continue to improve in and around our school, there will be no option other than to bring in the litter enforcers… If you drop litter, they can fine you £50 and/or give you community service… So…just bin it…we are not going to clean up after you…
