Darren Davison, operations manager at idverde, said:
“I am delighted to be working with the Litter Partnership to launch this initiative. If we can work with local people to keep their own neighbourhoods clean and tidy, we will deliver not only significant environmental, health and well-being benefits but also important savings to the public purse. I encourage everyone to identify a road or public space that they would like to keep clean, and get in touch with us.”
As a trial run, idverde has been supporting a group of volunteers in Upham and Owslebury with their regular litter-picking efforts on a Saturday morning. When necessary, the group is met by a member of idverde’s team, who provides appropriate equipment and safety support. On other occasions, idverde removes rubbish collected from agreed locations.
