Helping to keep our area beautiful – Live Here, Love Here
Today our awesome Coleraine team were out on their adopted stretch of road for their quarterly litter pick. We thought that it would be a great time to get our local area looking great, especially since in only a few days time 1000’s of international visitors will be arriving to enjoy the 148th Open at Royal Portrush.
In just 2 hours our team managed to collect over 12 bin bags full of litter from this 1.5 mile stretch of road. They picked up a huge variety of litter, from plastic bottles and aluminium cans to polystyrene food containers and car parts!
A massive well done to the team for their hard work this morning. And if you’d be interested in doing something similar, give the team at Live Here, Love Here a shout. They can kit you out with all you need to start your own litter pick and help Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful!
