Angus Council is calling all Arbroath residents to join a clean-up to tackle problem areas.

As part of the Clean Up Angus campaign, the local authority is holding a Clean Up Arbroath public meeting on Thursday, March 24 at Bruce House, Wellgate, Arbroath, from 6.30 to 8pm, to gauge local interest in a programme of voluntary clean-ups.

Acting on local concerns about litter hot-spots and unsightly rubbish the aim is to establish a residents’ task force to target local issues, whether within housing areas, on parkland or the beachfront.

Councillor Jeanette Gaul, chairperson of the Pride in Place member officer group, said: “There are already a host of volunteers in Arbroath and across the county who work closely and effectively with us to help keep Angus beautiful.

“But we can all play a part.

“So if you want to help keep your neighbourhood clean, tackle a favourite beauty spot that could do with some attention, or get involved in regular beach cleans or litter picks, then please come along to the meeting.”

Clean Up Angus is part of the Clean-up Scotland campaign that aims to make Scotland the cleanest country in Europe.

Led by Keep Scotland Beautiful, Clean-up Scotland aims to unite one million people across the country in the fight against litter and mess.
