Residents are being urged to help keep East Suffolk litter-free this Easter Bank Holiday.
East Suffolk Council is asking residents to make sure they dispose of their rubbish responsibly this Easter Bank Holiday by using the nearest bin or if full, taking their rubbish home.
As people spend more time outside, the amount of litter discarded across the district can increase dramatically. And whilst many people are using the litter bins provided at beaches, parks and other popular open spaces, others are dropping litter during their visits or are leaving rubbish besides bins which, although well-meant, is still a form of littering.
To help keep East Suffolk clean and tackle litter issues, East Suffolk Norse will be emptying bins in all main areas more frequently over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. However, people are reminded that their rubbish is their responsibility and are asked to help keep East Suffolk beautiful by disposing of their rubbish either in the nearest litter bin or if there is not a bin, or the bin is already full, taking it home.
Kerry Blair, Head of Operations at East Suffolk Council, said: “We are continuing to work hard to keep East Suffolk as clean and safe as possible, which will include emptying bins more often in popular areas, such as along seafronts, during the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend when we’re expecting to see local people spend more time outdoors. Please help us by putting your rubbish in the nearest litter bin. If there isn’t a bin nearby, or the bin is full, please take your rubbish home.”
