Armed with litter pickers, ninety two volunteers hit Fylde's
beaches in September to kick-start a new initiative to clean up the
BeachCare, a new joint project between Keep Britain Tidy, the
Environment Agency and United Utilities, aims to work with local
communities, volunteers, local authorities and industry, to improve
the beaches and bathing waters of the Fylde Coast.
The project was officially launched on 21 September 2011 with
two events at local beaches. Ninety two volunteers from the
partner organisations and local councils, Fylde Borough Council and Wyre Borough Council,
took part in cleaning up litter and carrying out surveys.
The groups collected a total of 136 bags of litter including
fishing netting, a tyre, a kitchen cupboard door, broken glass,
sweet wrappers and lots of small pieces of plastic.
