Team Up to Clean Up caddies

Is there an area in your community you'd like to tidy but you don't have the tools?

With Team Up to Clean Up's caddies, you'll be able to trim, tidy and transform your local area!

So what's in them?

Included is as many items as possible which will help you make a difference.

There's cordless grass trimmer, hedge trimmer and leaf blower, a dog waste poop scoop, an outdoor brush, secateurs, loppers, hedge cutting shears, a small digging trowel, a small weeding fork, a lawn rake, leaf grabber, forged edging knife, border spade, border fork, two ponchos, dog fouling stencil & two spray canisters.

Essentially, anything that will help you clear up your area!

During the winter, there's also a grit spreader, snow shovel and bags of grit provided to help keep your local streets ice-free.

Request a restock of a grit bin or find your nearest grit bin.

How do I borrow one?

Caddies are available from communities across Renfrewshire, with local groups and volunteers keeping them on behalf of their area.

All are welcome to borrow the caddies for your own local project.

How did this idea come about?

Taking advantage of our intrapreneur programme The Lens, volunteer and one of our Senior Wardens Gail Scoular pitched her idea for the creation of community caddies which will give residents the tools to carry out clean ups across Renfrewshire - be it a litter pick, hedge cutting or trimming trees.

Her fellow colleagues formed the judging panel and she won £12,000 in funding to create the caddies to be given to community groups across the area as part of the Team Up to Clean Up campaign

Gail's desire to make a difference is inspiring and we're delighted her idea has now come to fruition.
