Falkirk FC Set To Stop Litter
Written By SPFL Trust Media Centre
Falkirk Football club have recently started a new “no litter campaign” which aims to help clean local football pitches!
This a small but very effective as this campaign has drastically improved the amount of rubbish being kept within the bins and with the local amateur football clubs in Denny and Dunipace backing and of course The Bairns the programme is surely a winner.
Councillor Jim Blackwood and also spokesperson for Public Protection said: “There was a growing problem with litter following local football matches which tend to take place in public parks.”
“We have had fantastic support from local football teams who have helped us kick litter out of the game leaving playing parks free from litter and rubbish.”
As a result of the recent preliminary programme within Denny and Dunipace there was no more weekly complaints about people leaving litter on pitches after games, which is simply fantastic considering that the mass amount of rubbish would usually accumulate to 40 plastic bottles or more, football tape and crisp and sweet wrappers.
Kieran Koszary, Falkirk FC Development Manager added: “As a club we firmly endorse all of the work the litter team is doing in the Falkirk Council area and we are very much looking forward to this event to highlight how vital it is to keep local pitches clear from litter.”
