Village resident provides skip to help with large increase of litter at Eyes Meadow

A skip has been placed at Eyes Meadow to help with the increased volume of litter, thanks to local resident Justin Fellows.

Justin, of Little Eaton company Spirit Medical, has provided the skip, in partnership with Wards Skip and Recycling Company, free of charge to the Parish Council, so that visitors to the Meadow have somewhere to leave their picnic waste when the bins are full. Litter has been a huge problem in recent months, owing to increased numbers using the Meadow for recreation and to meet up with friends.

The skip will be provided throughout the summer, emptied and replaced by Ward, and is covered to avoid pests and fly tipping - please deposit rubbish by using the front 'door' as seen on the picture, and close it after use.

The skip can also be used by Duffield's many voluntary litter pickers who find the bins are full and we are very grateful to those villagers who continue to tidy up after others.

Justin said "I am very glad to be able to offer the help to the village. Eyes Meadow is an important space for all of us to keep the way we want it to look."
