Blackpool Council, Keep Britain Tidy and LOVEmyBEACH are all partners working hard to keep Blackpool’s beaches and bathing waters clean under the campaign Keep Blackpool Tidy, especially during the busy Bank Holiday weekend.
Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader Blackpool Council explained some of the interventions put in place along the seafront this year:
There are over 200 litter bins on Blackpool’s promenade alone which are emptied each day and have a daily capacity to fill 6 double decker buses! During the summer an additional 24 bins are provided.
Blackpool has made great efforts to get the litter free message across to visitors installing 16 Keep Blackpool Tidy Wind Sails on the sea front to remind people of their responsibility. This message is repeated with the help of local school children and a ‘’Love my Beach’’ news jingle which is played from council service vehicles.
We are proud of our beaches and our team works hard to make sure that the beaches are clean and attractive at the start of every day. To keep them this way we urge people to take their litter home or use the bins provided.
Visitors can help by following these top tips on keeping the beach clean.
