The Great Uttoxeter Plastic Pick Up
13 May, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ten years ago, the Daily Mail launched a campaign to end the scourge of plastic bags clogging the oceans. Today, there has been a staggering 85 per cent reduction in the number of bags used in Britain, plus the manufacture of microbeads is banned, supermarkets are vowing to eliminate single-use packaging and plastic bottle cash-back schemes are being considered across the UK.
Now, the Mail’s stepping up its war on plastic with The Great Plastic Pick Up, in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy, to encourage communities to come together from May 11 to 13 to clear rubbish from our streets…. and it’s coming to Uttoxeter!
We are welcoming volunteers to help us litter pick in Uttoxeter on the 13th May, you can make a difference by sparing just a few hours to collect plastic, cans and general litter.
We will be meeting at 10am at the Bramshall Park Car Park, where equipment will be provided. All are welcome.
You could be a school, a Uttoxeter resident, a local business team, everyone is welcome to join in!
The route will be announced shortly but mainly footpaths around the town and particular hotspots for waste.
The meeting and finish point will be at the Bramshall Park (Bramshall Road Entrance).
Approximately two-three hours.

Equipment will be provided including litter pickers, bags and bag hoops.
