Volunteers are given high-visibility vests, bin bags, gloves and litter pickers and encouraged to clean up litter and fly-tipped rubbish from the area’s streets and back lanes. Glasgow City Council’s Clean Glasgow campaign provides the equipment and removes the collected waste.
It’s a great hands-on way to improve the area we live in and a fantastic way to tackle the niggling issues that annoy anyone who lives in a busy, urban area.
As a result of the efforts of volunteers, Brighter Bungo was awarded a Keep Scotland Beautiful Outstanding neighbourhood achievement award in 2012.
As of autumn 2021 it is unclear if Brighter Bungo will resume post covid, as the Council have withdrawn public liability insurance for our activities. See the blogpost for details.
