Council welcomes £98,000 cash boost for litter cleaning

Cornwall Council News feed - Fri, 03/22/2019 - 12:07

Cornwall Council and partners will get a last-minute litter-cleaning boost after a £98,400 Government cash injection.

The one-off funding announced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government will be spent on community-led high street and town centre cleansing, including funding for relevant training, events and the purchase of litter picking equipment.

It comes at the start of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean aimed at getting everyone to do more to keep their local areas clean.

Cornwall Council has welcomed the funding which is required to be allocated over the next fortnight. It is now developing a plan with its partners Clean Cornwall and Biffa to make the best use of the new funding provision.

Sue James, Cornwall Council’s cabinet portfolio holder for the environment and neighbourhoods, said: “Whilst this initiative is welcome in Cornwall, it is important that the Council formulates a programme of spend that will make best use of this one-off funding provision for the communities of Cornwall.”

The funding is part of a £9.75 million Government fund announced by Communities Secretary James Brokenshire to back the efforts of community groups cleaning up their local areas across the country.

Cornwall Council and Clean Cornwall are celebrating the efforts of Cornwall’s litter heroes and their tireless work to create a #LitterlessCornwall.

To get involved in local litter picks and take part in the Great British Spring Clean go to Clean Cornwall.
