A new community volunteer project has been launched to help tackle litter in Sandwell.
Families at the Bangladeshi Islamic Centre in Smethwick joined in a litter pick in Lewisham Road to officially launch the Community Litterpicking Project.
The project seeks to recruit at least one volunteer group in each of Sandwell’s six towns helping out with litter picking at green spaces and community areas. There will also be talks and recycling workshops at schools.
Sandwell Council is supporting the project through its Local Area Budget scheme and the groups will also work with local businesses to seek sponsorship and support.
To find out more and get involved in the project, contact Litterwatch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0121 557 6970.
