A Bolton housing association is asking people from across the borough to join forces with them in three planned days of litter picking action.

Bolton at Home will be hosting three litter picking events this month.

In partnership with Rumworth Community Alliance, Bolton at Home and their partners Glendale Services will be litter picking in three areas, selected due to known litter issues.

And residents are invited to get involved to help make a difference.

Where and when the events will take place:

  • Birkdale Estate
    Thursday 9 May, 1pm to 3pm
    Meeting point: Sandwick Crescent Car Park, BL3 5EU
  • Thornbank Estate
    Thursday 16 May, 1pm to 3pm
    Meeting point: Thornbank East Car Park, BL3 5NN
  • Emmanuel Estate
    Saturday 18 May, 10am to 12pm
    Meeting point: Chatham Gardens Car Park main entrance, BL3 5BA

The idea behind the litter picking events is for the local community to come together to help make the three estates cleaner neighbourhoods for all to enjoy.

There’s no need to book, and equipment and safety instructions will be provided on the day.
