People living in Tayside are being asked to play their part in a big spring clean ahead of the Ryder Cup.

The Keep Scotland Beautiful charity wants us all to do our bit to clean up the community as part of the Clean Up Scotland Campaign.

“With an unprecedented number of visitors due to come to Scotland this year for the Ryder Cup and the Commonwealth Games Clean Up Scotland has launched its Big Spring Clean Up to encourage everyone living here to make Scotland look its best for us all - including the many tourists who will be in Tayside and Perthshire,” said a spokesman for the charity.

The spokesman added that in the longer term the campaign aimed to make Scotland the cleanest country in Europe by 2020.

He continued that the clean up would start in April and would bring together businesses, schools, community groups, and individuals with the common purpose of improving their local environment.

“There will be events in communities around Scotland and a special emphasis around May 10 which is Let’s Clean Up Europe Day.

“This is an important initiative to do something practical about our environments” he continued.

He said that all registered clean up events would receive a free clean up kit including protective tabards, a poster to promote the event, stickers for children and a support pack which included everything needed to plan a safe, fun and successful event.
