Help with national clean up

A SPRING Clean challenge is underway and everyone in Dumfriesshire is urged to help tidy up Scotland.

The litter busting initiative runs until April 21 and has been organised by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Chief executive Barry Fisher said: “Across Scotland we have seen a steady increase in the amount of litter over the past decade. While this is a real challenge, we are heartened by the incredible work of litter picking heroes up and down the country.

“Our communities already play a vital role in taking action to tackle litter. Across Scotland we have seen lots of people giving up their time to clean up their local areas despite the challenges of the last two years.

“We would love as many people as possible to join in, make litter a thing of the past, and give Scotland a spring clean this March and April.”
