A campaign to clean up our streets will take to the road next week hoping to encourage the people of Lancaster to put litter in the bin.

Staff from Lancaster City Council’s environmental services team will host a roadshow in Market Square in Lancaster between 10am and 3pm on Thursday, August 6.

They will be handing out information on what we can all do to help keep our streets tidy and free of rubbish.

Children can take part in a scavenger hunt to win prizes and the campaign’s mascot, Phil the Bin, will also be in the city.

Coun David Smith, Cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services, said: “We have a beautiful district and we all want to work together to keep it that way.

“The council has its role to play but so too does the public – we want to see our beaches clean, and our countryside free of litter. And we want our town centres free of the blight of litter – and that means attacking litter on all fronts.”
