Summer Clean Up

The council is backing a national summer clean-up campaign which kicks off this bank holiday weekend.

Keep Scotland Beautiful’s (KSB) Summer Clean 2021 will run from May 28 to June 20.

And anyone who is planning their own KSB Summer Clean in South Lanarkshire can get in touch with the council who can provide rubbish bags, protective gloves and the loan of litter pickers.

The council can also make arrangements to pick up full rubbish bags and take them for proper, safe disposal.

Chair of South Lanarkshire Community and Enterprise Resources Councillor John Anderson said: “We have a long-standing and very positive relationship with a whole range of community groups who organise litter picks.

“The limits on numbers meeting up under Levels Three and Four meant regular activity had to be curtailed but now we have returned to Level Two I am delighted to see not only do we have regular groups keen to catch up but we are also seeing more and more groups and individuals keen to organise clean up events in their area.”

A web form is now available to make it easier than ever to request support if you are planning a community clean up. Details are on the council’s website
