Plog clean up

A one mile walking ‘plog’ at Portland Basin saw four black bags of landfill collected consisting of 83 plastic bottles, 30 glass bottles and 224 tin cans.

Tameside has recently introduced the Litter Hubs Network where residents or groups can book out free equipment, including high Vis jackets, litter pickers, gloves and black bags from community venues. 

To arrange your own Plog using the equipment provided you can visit www.tameside.gov.uk/litterhubs for more information.

Meanwhile the Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Leigh Drennan, recently joined Ashton Sea Cadets (TS Quantock) on a litter-pick around their canalside base on Lower Wharf Street.
