Roadside clearances of litter are taking place this weekend as part of Falkirk Council’s ongoing work to support Keep Scotland Beautiful (KSB) Spring Clean campaign.

Workers will be out at:

  • Falkirk Wheel Roundabout to Mariner Centre, Glasgow Road
  • Nethermains Road, Denny
  • Beancross Road, Grangemouth
  • New Hallglen Road, Hallglen

They will be clearing roadside litter carelessly discarded by motorists diverting resources away from other Waste and Recycling functions.

The crews were out last Saturday (11 March) and filled 60 black bin bags full of waste material in just five hours after cleaning areas in Merchiston, Grangemouth and Carronshore.

Councillor Iain Sinclair, Falkirk Council’s spokesperson for Climate Change said: “We are fortunate to have such great support from our communities in tackling litter and supporting our workers in clearing up areas that are blighted by the irresponsible actions of individuals.

“Littering is unnecessary, harmful to our environment and damaging to our communities – take it home or put in a bin – so little time and effort to make a huge difference.

“I want to thank everyone, including our own workforce, for taking part in the KSB Spring Clean initiative and helping to keep our neighbourhoods clean and safe for everyone.”

Community groups and individuals can support the KSB campaign by signing up online and can request equipment to help with litter clearance from Falkirk Council.
