Winsford Bin it for Good campaign reaches final phase

7 February 2017

A Winsford-based campaign where local charities benefit from the increased use of litter bins, has reached its final phase.

Cheshire West and Chester Council has been taking part in a three-month project, where litter bins have been transformed into charity collection pots, featuring a new local charity or cause each month.

The Council has joined forces with environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy and The Wrigley Company.  The more litter that goes into the bins and the less on the ground, the more money the featured charity of the month will receive from an allocated budget.

This month, the final good cause to benefit from the campaign is the Winsford Sensations dance group, which welcomes dancers of all ages.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said, “This is such a simple but effective way to raise money for good causes.  I’m sure Winsford residents will do all they can to make sure the final phase of this campaign is as successful as previous months.

“The Bin it for Good project supports the Council’s work to improve the quality of our local areas.  Our Street Care Pledge sets out a shared commitment with local residents to maintain a clean and attractive environment.” An initial three-month pilot of the Bin It For Good campaign took place in Rayleigh, Essex, in 2014, which saw a reduction in litter of over 42%.
