An anti-litter drive is running in Corby during September as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Dirty Pig campaign.

To help get the message across, Corby Council staff enlisted the help of Coco the pig, pictured with senior street scene officer Natasha Bell.

The council’s lead member for environment Cllr Paul Beattie said: “Littering not only makes the town look untidy, but it can also be dangerous for wildlife, dogs and residents, especially young children who could harm themselves if they pick something up from the ground.

“Corby already tackles the problem and has more than 400 litter bins around the borough, several teams from Kier Street Services out collecting litter on a daily basis and regular community litter-picks.”
