Action on Litter

2016-08-20 12.40.17


Litter
is a major concern for many living, working and playing in the Wingrove and Arthur’s Hill area.

Through a dynamic community organising approach (which brings communities together by responding directly to what issues matter most to them), Greening Wingrove & Arthur’s Hill has been successful in mobilising regular resident-led volunteer litter picks.

Regular litter pick events open to all:

  • Monthly – Third Saturday of the month 11am, different meeting points across Arthur’s Hill. Check our events diary for latest details.
  • Mondays 10am (except Bank Holidays) Nuns Moor Park. Meet at the Bike Garden in the park. Further information on the Friends of Nuns Moor Park Facebook page.
  • Mondays 10am Bentinck Road/West Road. This litter pick is organised by members of Time Exchange. Contact 0191 245 0663 for more details.
  • Wednesdays 9.30am Wingrove lanes. Meet Medina Foods at the junction of Nuns Moor Road and Wingrove Road. (Please note that if the weather is not good, litter picks may be cancelled at short notice.)

Many other litter picks are now being initiated by individual residents and neighbours right across the West End, playing a key role in ensuring they are part of the movement to make a real difference to the area.

Check our Events Page for more details about other local litter picks.

Shared Waste Bins have replaced green and blue bins in many parts of our area, and there are plans to bring in more. Opinion however is divided on whether they are making our streets look better or worse. Greening Wingrove & Arthur’s Hill CIC has been asking residents what they think and will be presenting opinions to the City Council, as part of a strategy to use local feedback to shape the way services are delivered in our area. You can add your voice by getting in touch and letting us know your opinion.
