Camborne residents’ rally round for community litter pick

Cornwall councillor Paul White.

Mr White said the litter pick was in response to residents’ concerns about the state of the tramway which is well used by people walking their children to school.
Resident, Carol Kitto, called for more community litter picks like the one organised by Councillor White.
She and her husband, Stuart, were very pleased to take part, saying they hoped it would continue with more people in the community taking a pride in their local areas and keeping them clean.
Councillor White said he was delighted with the event which in just two hours collected 21 full bags of litter, a TV, a sofa, a supermarket trolley and other items.
He said: “I know some people think that the council should be doing more but, sadly, resources are very limited due to the cut backs. I will do everything I can to clean up the town and would welcome anyone living in my area contacting me if they want me to arrange a litter pick in their community.”
