Prevent and Pick up 3 campaign

It's been a busy few weeks preparing for this next stage of the 'Prevent and Pick up 3 Campaign'. East Haven Residents have participated in training aimed at supporting us to engage directly with members of the public to encourage people not just to stop dropping litter but also to pick some up everytime they go out and about. Its about changing the mind set of people. I was in Carnoustie this morning and right in the middle of the path outside the chemist was a small cardboard box. The area was busy and everybody was taking great care to walk round it and not trip up over it. I couldn't believe that nobody took the initiative to simply pick it up and pop it into a bin. We have work to do!
