Doing whatever we can to help improve the environment around us has always been part of the way we like to work at EPC-UK.
We were pleased to add ten new grabbers to their cause, which has helped the groups tremendously, as previously they needed to borrow equipment from Tendring Council.
“The groups’ litter picking achievements are truly impressive and advantageous for us all,” said Michelle Miller, General Manager at EPC-UK.
“Both groups are having to take a break from monthly litter picks for the moment of course, however based on results reported upon by the Harwich and Manningtree Standard in February, the Little Oakley group succeeds in collecting on average 18 bin bags full of rubbish in one Sunday session.
“Local residents, families and current and former councillors get involved to clear up after others. It would be wonderful if the precedent they set served to prevent people from littering and consequently damaging the local environment for residents and the wildlife that inhabits the area.”
