Reduction of waste is an issue very close to our hearts here at the CCG!

One of the aims of the CCG project is to clean5km of rivers. This involes removing peoples unwanted rubbish from the rivers. Over the years we have found trolleys, TV's, mattresses, pallets, bikes and even a car in the river!

Let's prevent this from happening - help stop rubbish entering our environment/rivers and change your habits now!
