Crowthorne High Street (Inc former Rogers Way)
Dukes Ride (Crowthorne Station to Prince Pub)
Lower Broadmoor Road
From the 25 January to 16 February 2018, the following amount of litter and recycling has been collected: -
9 full 120 litre bags of general waste = 1,080 litres in total
7 full 80 litre bags of recycling waste = 560 litres in total.
The Parish Council will be continuing with this initiative, so if you see any locations within Crowthorne Parish which require attention please email the location and details to: email@example.com.
Crowthorne Parish Council has resolved to support Crowthorne Reduce Our Waste (C.R.O.W), who are committing to plastic free alternatives and supporting plastic free initiatives within the village to create a plastic free community.
The group's aim is to campaign to make Crowthorne Village reduce its use of single use materials and to encourage refusing, reducing, reusing and recycling.
