The This is my Doncaster campaign is all about getting local people to take pride in their community.
The council doesn’t have the massive financial resources needed to keep everywhere spotless, and it already costs us £500,000 each year to pick up dumped rubbish and dropped litter.
The only way we are going to make a positive impact to protect the environment is by working together with local people.
As part of our ‘This is My Doncaster – Keep it Clean’ campaign Doncaster Council staff and volunteers regularly hold action days to blitz local areas. In conjunction with the Great British Spring Clean the council is looking for even more willing volunteers to donate whatever time they have to help clean up litter from streets and parks while recycling as much as possible. You can find out more about the national campaign, sign up and register your clean up at www.keepbritaintidy.org/get-involved/support-our-campaigns/great-british-spring-clean
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any equipment and tag @MyDoncaster using the #GBSpringClean hashtag in to your social media posts to raise awareness of the event and we will do our best to share your photos and videos.
A key part of the This is my Doncaster campaign is our successful community action days.
These take place across Doncaster, and see council staff and volunteers blitz clean the local area, collect dumped waste and concentrate enforcement in one community at a time.
|To be arranged.....|
The purpose of these dedicated community days is to get the area looking clean and tidy, and then hand some responsibility for maintaining this to the residents while we continue to carry out routine cleanses. Below are examples of our previous action days.
A selection of photos from the day is available here.
