Take more pride in your town and pick up litter

Michelle Page-Cook, Sale


I AM increasingly frustrated with the amount of litter around Sale, and it is always a little worse at school holiday time.

I try to pick up as much as I can, but it is a never ending cycle and my bins will only hold so much.

I cannot stop the lazy litter bugs who have no respect for the town, but I can plead to everyone else to at least pick up any litter out the front of their homes or workplaces and put it in the bin.

How can we encourage visitors to the town with all of the bottles, cans and takeaway food litter scattered around?

Don’t give excuses, just pick it up. Simple.
