King's Lynn businessman backs litter campaign
After the county council endorsed a campaign to stop fly-tipping and litter, a well-known Lynn businessman has backed the campaign.
David Goddard, who runs George Goddard Ltd, said “a few selfish people” are causing the problem with “little respect for others.”
He has set out a list of ways in which the problem can be combatted in the area.
First, Mr Goddard suggets contacting a parish councillor or clerk to volunteer to help with regular litter picks.
He also cites reporting fly-tipping to the borough council on 01553 616200.
“Prevention is better than cure. Education has to start at home and school,” Mr Goddard said.
“If there are no available bins your litter should be taken home and disposed of with your domestic waste.”
Encouraging all schools to arrange set litter picks on the school grounds is something he endorses.
Moreover, any fly-tipping or dumping of rubbish should be photographed as well as taking a note of the registration number, date, time and place when reporting the incident.
“Please help spread the message, litter and waste threatens both wildlife and the environment and this irresponsible behaviour is not acceptable,” Mr Goddard added.
“By working together we can improve our fine county.”
