Founded: 18th Nov 2018

Town or City: Walton on thames

Areas covered: All areas of Walton on Thames - town centre, Hersham road, Terrace road, Sidney road, all side roads, all local parks, the Thames towpath

The ethos of this group is to encourage people - particularly the young to take responsibility for their litter and to support the local council in cleaning up after those people who don’t.
There is little point in naming and shaming but by taking direct action we are visibly highlighting the issue and discouraging some from dropping their rubbish.  We may only scratch the surface but that’s better than accepting litter as “normal”. Our goal is to identify people in every road who will take responsibility for “clearing” their own road/Lane/street. If we get enough people to do this on a regular basis, it will help keep our areas clean, encourage others to do likewise in their own areas, reduce pollution levels, potentially reduce vermin numbers and generally make our lives a little happier and healthier.  Happy to share litter picking equipment to achieve these goals.
