Community litterpick organised by Green Councillors in Wensum ward (my ward)

 
The litterpick is to take place on Sunday 7th November from 2.30pm, in the heart of the North Earlham / Larkman estate:

Green Party Councillors are organising a community litterpick in the Cadge Road area on Sunday 7th November at 2:30pm, meeting initially outside the Grove Pub.
Lots of people have been concerned about the amount of litter in the area and the litterpick is a great way show how much people in the community care about the issue. We will be inviting local businesses and community organisations to come along and take part and we will provide all the equipment to ensure that residents who help out are safe and clean! If _you_ would like to come then email me (or comment here) so we have an idea of numbers - but do feel free in any case just to turn up on the day.
We're doing this just to make a difference, but we're also doing it to put pressure on the owners of the Grove Pub site to tidy up the litter on site. They have been asked to do this by Green Councillors and by the neighbourhood manager. The site is frankly in a pretty terrible state, and that makes it harder to keep the area as a whole in a tidy condition. If we take a lead on cleaning up the street around this eyesore, then hopefully the site owners will feel more of an obligation to play their part, too.

and will the "litter" collected be sorted for recycling or go straight to landfill?

Yes, we will definitely try to take out recyclables.
