Keeping Saltburn Tidy
Let’s keep it clean in Saltburn
Keeping Saltburn Tidy
Everywhere we go there is rubbish!
Be it filling the bins up on the streets, in our gardens, or being blown around in the wind.
The average person in the UK throws away an estimated 400kg of waste each year. Seven times their body weight. Of the 26m tonnes of waste produced in the UK, 12m tonnes are recycled, and 14m tonnes are sent to landfill sites. A lot of waste is blown into areas inhabited by many species of wildlife and can have a massively negative impact. It also looks awful and can attract vermin. This is why it is so important to keep our areas clean.
Here in Saltburn there are many volunteers, workers, and businesses that keep our area tidy. Below are a list of those people and businesses, as well as information which will help you help keep Saltburn Tidy.
If you know something that isn’t on the list, give us a message and we will take a look.
Post your elastic bands in the post box!
Did you know that you can post your used, broken, or unwanted elastic bands into the post box? Well now you do!
Royal Mail are encouraging people to post your unwanted bands which will be reused by the team.
Any of your posted broken ones will be recycled!
Even the biodegradable bands take years to do so, which is why this is a fabulous way to stop them going to landfill, or ending up in the sea.
Many of the residents on the Streets of Saltburn have got together and transformed what were once very sorry looking areas.
Saltburn alleyways have been made a wonderful place to sit and relax in the sun with a huge array of colourful flowers, beautiful artwork along the walls, and fabulous looking bunting above.
Take a look for yourself with our slide show of several of the alleys taking part. Give yourself a huge pat on the back residents. They look amazing!!!
A local community organisation started in 1996, carries out seasonal litter picks and surveys, forwarding the data to the Marine Conservation Society.
You can keep up with information on upcoming litter picks, how to keep your coastal areas clean, staying safe by the sea, and much more. If you would like to take part, give them a message
