We had a brilliant day at the launch of the #weRpollards project! The sun was shining as the community came together to take part in a family-friendly litter pick and celebrate a shared vision for a cleaner, more sustainable Pollards Hill. Guests were also treated to some delicious pizza provided by Dough 'N' Go 😋 (what's a party without pizza, hey?!) and there was a buzz of excitement and pride in the air as the new bin vinyl design was unveiled.
Through the campaign, Sustainable Merton, Moat Housing and local Waste Champions are working together to improve recycling and waste disposal on Pollards Hill Estate, whilst fostering a greater sense of pride in the local community.
Our wonderful volunteer Waste Champions will act as ambassadors for better recycling and behaviours in the community and inspire their neighbours to get involved and do their bit. There has been a fantastic response so far, and the team is already doing a great job - including coming up with the campaign name which we LOVE!
