The Greenway Big Tidy Up

Published Tuesday, 23 September 2014

Are you proud of East Northamptonshire and want to keep the Greenway looking as glorious as possible? Then we need your help.


We’re appealing for volunteers to join officers and Kier (our waste contractors) to help clean up the Rushden stretch of the Greenway next month, as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s biggest-ever tidy-up.

The Greenway Big Tidy Up will take place on 11 October from 9am to 12pm. If you can spare a few hours to support this important event please meet at Splash Pool car park, where an officer will provide you with gloves, bags and pickers.

Charlotte Tompkins, Waste Manager at East Northamptonshire Council, said:

"Our Waste Management team works hard to ensure that the district is kept clean, tidy and safe but we can always do with a helping hand to keep on top of things. We’re really happy to support Keep Britain Tidy and organise a Big Tidy Up of the Greenway in Rushden, which is well used by residents and visitors. So come along for a fun morning and help to keep the Greenway litter free for all to enjoy."

Let us know if you’re planning to join us by emailing with the subject ‘Big Tidy Up’ or calling 01832 742026.
