A PIZZA company in Westhoughton carried out a litter pick in the town’s beauty spots.

One of the town’s largest businesses, Stateside Foods, which operates out of the Wingates Industrial Estate, collected more than 50 bin liners of rubbish on July 31.

A team of 20 tackled litter in Long Lane, Manchester Road, Chew Moor and footpaths near Westhoughton Golf Club and Dobb Brow.

The company, which is sponsoring Business of the Year in this year’s Bolton and Bury Business Awards, Bolton Food Festival and works with Westhoughton High School, said Westhoughton was their community and it “needed looking after”.

Managing director Jon Lucas said: “There are some very pretty walks in the areas around the Wingates Estate that, for a keen walker, can take you right through to nearby Borsdane Wood and Westhoughton Golf Course.

"These are being spoiled by the litter that is left. Westhoughton is our community — we care about it and need to look after it.”

Cllr Kevan Jones, mayor of Westhoughton, said: “I am pleased one of our largest businesses has taken it upon themselves to tidy up our town.

“I hope other businesses can follow Stateside Foods’ example and organise a litter pick in their area. Together, we can keep our community litter free.”

The litter pick was carried out with help from Bolton Council and Bagnall & Morris Skips, who provided skips free of charge to remove the rubbish.

All fast food outlets should provide each year a litter bin, with or without adverts, to help alleviate this kind of thing. But sorry people would be to LAZY to use them.

Stateside foods make frozen pizzas for supermarkets and pubs, its not a fast food outlet
