St Albans City and District Council is inviting residents and community groups to get involved in Litter Pick Week.

The council has organised a series of events from 19-27 March, which it hopes will improve the appearance of the city's parks and open spaces.

Groups who organise their own litter picks will get advice and basic equipment from the council.

The council will also arrange for any rubbish collected to be picked up from an agreed location.

Councillor Melvyn Teare, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Sustainability for St Albans City and District Council, said: "Please join in this great initiative to help get rid of plastic bags, tin cans and old newspapers from our streets and open spaces.

"You can either organise your own event or attend one listed on the St Albans City and District Council website."
