On this day, people all over the country pick up litter and of course residents, associations and companies in the municipalities where Waardlanden operates also take part. Won't you join us too?

Clean into spring

It is almost a traditional spring cleaning but outside. Many of the regular litter pickers will therefore be picking up litter again on 23 March. Alone or together with friends, neighbours, sports association or club. Help too and contribute to a clean environment. That way, together, we ensure a clean municipality.

In our region

There is also plenty happening in our region this weekend. Some of the many initiatives:

  • In Ameide, the Lekprikkers get to work in their own neighbourhood from 9am to 11.30am.
  • In Giessenburg, the action "Giessenburg Schoon" is on the agenda. An initiative of Dorpskamer Giessenburg, Dorpsoverleg Giessenburg and Stichting Duurzaam Molenlanden.

The clean-up action is from 8.30 to 11.00 a.m. from the Dorpskamer, Breestraat 2 in Giessenburg.

Safe litter picking

Do not pick up litter with your bare hands but always with gloves or a litter gripper. Don't have a litter picker or gloves (anymore)? Then ask our environmental coaches Ingrid and Nelleke for them. Send an e-mail to The Litter picker or gloves can then be collected from the Waardlanden office at Boezem 3 in Gorinchem. Litter should be disposed of with residual waste.
