The Allen Valleys Supporters Group were out marking World Earth Day 2023 with a litter pick in their local community.

Four bags of rubbish were collected and taken to the Allendale Waste Recovery Centre for recycling and safe disposal.

Labour is committed to safe-guarding the environment. Littering and flytipping are a scourge on our beautiful Northumberland landscape. In a recent announcement Labour have pledged to set up “clean up squads” across the country to deal with rubbish being illegally dumped 3,000 times each day. In 2022 there were over 4700 incidents of flytipping in Northumberland. The recent decision by Northumberland County Council to reduce the opening hours at the Prudhoe and Morpeth Waste Recovery Centres is likely to lead to an increase in flytipping in the County and is being opposed by Labour Party members locally.
