Jackie Baillie MSP has joined environmental charity, Keep Scotland Beautiful, in applauding the efforts of local residents from Rhu, Arrochar and Luss who are participating in its annual Spring Clean campaign, which is taking place across the country throughout April and May.
Keep Scotland Beautiful is supporting communities to take part and help remove litter from their local area – transforming the places that they live in and improving the areas that they care for.
Throughout April and May, Keep Scotland Beautiful will be working with residents, businesses, schools and community groups to arrange their own Clean Up events to remove rubbish from local streets, parks and public areas.
“I am proud of the effort that residents in my constituency make every year as part of the Spring Clean. I know that the events which are held across the country bring communities together.
“The events in Rhu, Arrochar and Luss will help to remove more litter and preserve these beautiful areas. I know communities throughout the constituency – in Dumbarton, Garelochhead, and the Cove/Kilcreggan Peninsula organise events all year round. I would encourage anyone who wishes to organise an event to get in touch with Keep Scotland Beautiful.
“I hope that the 2019 Spring Clean Campaign is a fantastic success.”
Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, commented:
“Keep Scotland Beautiful is calling for people across the country to take part in our annual Spring Clean campaign. Every April and May thousands of volunteers take to the streets and remove a significant amount of litter from their local communities.
“We are very proud of everyone’s hard work and hope that everyone will take part – helping to make 2019 the most successful Spring Clean campaign to date.”
