Fife Council are asking Fife’s communities to take part in the national Spring Clean 2019 of Fife’s Coastal Path. Keep Scotland Beautiful’s national campaign is aiming to get as many community groups, businesses, schools, individuals and other organisation working together to clean-up Scotland and they are hoping that you might be interested in taking part.
Fife Council is in full support of Spring Clean 2019 and in partnership with Fife Coast & Countryside Trust is encouraging locals to get involved and organise their own clean-ups along the 117 miles of Fife Coastal Path and beaches. The clean-ups will tackle the problem of illegal dumping, land based and marine litter which are an eyesore and can be dangerous to people, wildlife and pets.
Cllr Ross Vettraino, convener of environment, protective services and community safety explained: “Litter and illegal dumping is an ongoing problem and the help we get from community groups is invaluable. Spring is a popular time for community clean-ups with many groups organising them annually. This year we’re getting behind the national campaign by encouraging community groups to target clean-ups along the length of Fife’s Coastal Path.”
The Safer Communities Team will provide groups with litterpickers, bags, gloves, skips (in certain circumstances) and liability insurance so you can carry out the clean-up safely. To coincide with Keep Scotland Beautiful’s National Spring Clean Campaign the coastal path community clean-up will take place throughout April and May 2019.
If you are interested in taking part in the campaign then please email [email protected] who can provide further information or arrange to deliver equipment to you.
