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.

Saltburn Alleyways

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!!!

K.I.C.A.S -Keeping It Clean At Saltburn

Keeping it clean at Saltburn is a group of Saltburn people who got together with the common aim to keep our beach clean and litter free, for us, for the wildlife and for the environment.
We regularly, as a group, or individuals, undertake 2 minute beach cleans, (check out 2minutebeachclean online) we also join in with larger organised nationwide litter picks with Surfers against sewage and litter surveys with the Marine society conservation.
We aim to have our own 2 minute beach clean stations on the lower promenade to encourage residents and visitors to join the growing number of people who want to help to keep beaches clean.
We will also have our own organised beach cleans and will let you keep up to date of when these events are, as well as sending out the call on this page and our twitter page for people to join in our flash mob beach cleans.

Saltburn Countryside Volunteers

They are a volunteer run community group of lovely people, carrying out conservation work within Saltburn woods and valley gardens.

They work from the meadow to the beach cleaning and taking care of nature as we go. They also take part in surveys of the many different species of wildlife in the local area. 

If you would like to take part give them a message on their social media
