Away with the dirt! Bocholt rubbish walk takes place from 18 March
The spring sun motivates people to spring clean. Not only your own four walls need cleaning, but also the city and the country need spring cleaning. The waste management advisory service of the Entsorgungs- und Servicebetrieb (ESB) is therefore once again calling for a city-wide waste collection.
The event starts on 18 March, and people can collect whenever they have the time and the inclination. The waste advisory service will provide all interested parties with the necessary utensils.
"As many people are outdoors in this beautiful weather, the commitment to do something for the environment is also high. We support this with the so-called 'rubbish walk'," explains ESB waste advisor Petra Tacke. Anyone who wants to collect rubbish can take part. The waste walk is deliberately not tied to a specific date. The waste advisory service of the ESB will be handing out collection packs for those interested from 13 March onwards. Each collection package contains gloves, rubbish bags and a small surprise.
Support from associations
The waste advisory service is supported by numerous clubs in Bocholt. The clubs that regularly took part in the Dreck Weg campaigns receive the materials such as gloves and rubbish bags in larger quantities from the ESB. Around 2000 participants took part in the "Bocholt Garbage Walk" last year.
"It would be very nice if we could top this number to rid Bocholt of rubbish" said waste advisor Petra Tacke. "The commitment of the many participants is enormously high in Bocholt. It's collected as plogging, that is picking up rubbish while jogging, or with children on an adventure walk or on the regular dog walk, the ideas are manifold."
Registration for better planning
In order to better plan and prepare the materials needed, the waste advisory service asks for registration by 9 March at petra.tacke(at)esb.bocholt(dot)de or by phone at 0 28 71 / 24 63 24.
