Works to install new litter bins has recently been carried out by AshingtonTown Council.

Residents in the Greencroft area identified a litter issue and requested the Town Council to provide a litter bin to address the issue. In the photograph is Haydon Ward Councillor Brian Gallacher and resident Mrs Gloria Leitch with the new litter bin.

There are now over 500 litter bins in the town and further will be added in the new year, by the Town Council, at the request of residents. Please note Northumberland County Council retains responsibility for emptying the bins in the town.
