Carrick Management are dedicated to helping take care of their community which is why on the 2nd September at 11am we took part in a community litter pick in Hilltown Community Centre garden organised by Greenways: Dundee Low Impact Hub.
We, at Carrick Management are committed to creating a sustainable business practice by helping clean up the surrounding areas of our schools, nursery’s, and community buildings thereby helping to reduce our environmental footprint.
Litter can affect more than the appearance of our environment but can also affect the air we breathe, our water and our soil. Carrick Management hope to encourage other companies to get involved in giving back to the community and helping improve the wellbeing of our planet.
Community Clean organiser, Caroline Bentley said “We run a litter pick once a month so that volunteers can look after where they live and where our children go to school. It runs monthly with the aim that cleaning up becomes more acceptable but by cleaning up we can help promote a sense of pride in our community.”
Development Director, Nicola Brown said: “It is fantastic to be able to help our community and the environment through this litter pick event. All the Carrick Management team were involved in this event which cleaned up the surrounding areas of the Hilltown Community Centre, Rosebank Primary School and Our Lady’s RC Primary School. We’d like to encourage individuals and other organisations to do their bit and get involved in events, like this one, in their local communities.”
The group meets at 11am outside Hilltown Community Centre on Alexander Street and the upcoming dates are Wednesday 7th October, Wednesday 4th November and Wednesday 2nd December. Hand sanitiser, clean gloves and litter pickers will be available if you would like to get involved in future events.
