Newham residents’ chance to tackle litter
Newham residents concerned about the growing problem of litter can join a national campaign to combat the problem.
The first ever nationwide public consultation on tackling the problem has been launched by the Clean Up Britain (CLUB) campaign.
Called “Litter Box”, the aim is to ask local people around the country to submit their thoughts - by post or by email - on litter and to find effective ways to combat the problem.
Since the 1960s, the amount of litter in Britain has increased by 500 per cent and it now costs �1 billion a year to clean it up.
Local councils are being forced to make millions of pounds in cuts when the money spent on clearing up litter could be better used in schools, care homes, repairing roads, libraries, sports facilities and many more things.
