Litter-picking success in Mansfield for Queen’s clean up

As part of its support for the country’s biggest-ever community clear up, Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s Waste Contractors) organised a litter-pick with the Oak Tree Conservation Group in Forest Town Mansfield.

At the litter pick on Friday 4th March, 10 willing volunteers helped to collect 20 bags of recyclables and rubbish in Forest Town Mansfield for the national Clean for The Queen tidy-up as part of the weekend long national event.

The Clean for The Queen is centered on a weekend of activity from March 4th to 6th 2016. Its aim was to get a million people out and about cleaning up their communities in the biggest community-led clean-up the country has ever seen ahead of The Queen’s 90th birthday in April.

Lea Hawkes, General Manager for Veolia said: ‘We are proud to have taken part in the Clean for The Queen campaign, it’s about everyone working together to give the country a big spring clean ahead of Her Majesty’s birthday.’
Clean for The Queen campaign director Adrian Evans said: ‘It is great to see so many local authorities getting behind Clean for The Queen. Litter is a problem that affects every corner of the country. By taking part in Clean for The Queen, individuals and communities will not only be giving The Queen a suitably impressive gift to mark her 90th birthday, they will also be giving themselves and their area a present – a clean space in which to live, work and play.’
