Clean-up task force is looking for volunteers
Volunteers are being sought to help keep communities like Toryglen, Castlemilk, King’s Park and Croftfoot clean.
Glasgow City Council want people to come forward and join their Environmental Task Force.
A recruitment drive has been launched to encourage people to join more than 500 dedicated volunteers across the city who take pride in their communities and organise litter picks.
Neighbourhood improvement volunteers (NIVs) are supplied with equipment such as litter pickers, gloves and tabards by the Task Force. Volunteers either carry out individual litter picks or organise larger community events - depending on how much time they want to dedicate.
Councillor Frank McAveety, leader of Glasgow City Council and chair of the task force, said: “Glasgow’s army of more than 500 neighbourhood improvement volunteers take real pride in their communities and the work they do in their own areas is truly inspirational.
“I’d urge anyone with a love of their neighbourhood to consider becoming a NIV. They’ll receive equipment and support from the task force and be doing their bit to help Glasgow’s communities flourish.”
