A group of green-fingered grafters spent a recent afternoon picking up litter around the Trust as part of the “Love Where You Work” initiative in collaboration with Rotherham Council.
Wayne Monroe-Smith, RMBC’s Love Where You Live and Love My Streets Project Coordinator, provided the Trust team with all the necessary litter-picking equipment and advised them on how to safely litter pick in compliance with Covid-19 restrictions.
June Cadman, Waste Management and Environmental Services Officer, said: “We were able to do a circuit of the hospital. It did show what an excellent job our gardeners do, and the majority of what was collected was cigarette butts.
“We are looking to carry out a further litter pick during the winter period, working again with Wayne from RMBC.”
The Love Where You Live and Love My Streets Project encourages Rotherham folk to join the campaign and help to look after and improve the area where they live, by being the eyes and ears of the community.
Local people can also get involved in community clean ups and litter picks – with equipment loaned out free of charge and council staff taking away the rubbish at the end of the day.
